Roosevelt Elementary School
As one of the largest and oldest elementary schools in the district, Roosevelt will be completely rebuilt to better serve the needs of the growing student community. Re-opening is projected for 2015.
The compact site requires innovative use of space, including a playground built above a ground-level parking garage and a multipurpose room with a stage and audio/visual alcove.
To honor the “Art Deco” architecture of the original school and its historical neighborhood, the new buildings will be built with the same classical balance of traditionalism and modernism.
The usable interior space will increase from 64,000 to 100,000 square feet and improvements will be made in a new pick-up/drop-off plaza to reduce street congestion. All portables will be removed from the campus and replaced with permanent buildings that will surround a central amphitheater
and common area with shade trees and landscaping.
Playground space will increase by 50 percent, and an enclosed waiting area will provide shelter for students
awaiting transit to other schools.
