Baird Elementary School

The new two-story building organizes the different age groups into educational pods. Each pod will include four classrooms situated around a shared resource area and small group instruction classroom. Students in grades 3-5 will be placed in pods on the second floor while the younger students will have classes on the first floor. Fostering mentorship and collaboration, communicating stairs will connect the two floors and allow the creation of a buddy program between older and younger students.

The overall design for the new school allows for transparency throughout the building fostering more student collaboration. Strategically located windows connect students to the surrounding park and forest. Additionally, an outdoor classroom acts as a unique learning space and provides further connection to the surrounding environment.
