- The steel framed building with structural metal stud walls and masonry veneer is surrounded by asphalt play areas, landscaped lawns and bus loops.
- The site was raised up to five feet to bring it level with the neighboring roadways and the proposed new Light Rail Train (LRT) line.
- Panelized aluminum accents at the canopies and entrances highlight the modern design of this highly functional elementary school.
