This new 850-student elementary school serves the growing needs of the Dripping Springs community. Nestled in the hill country, this school celebrates the role of nature in education and daily life, providing opportunities to connect with the outdoors for students and staff alike. The center for learning and innovation is located adjacent to the entry of the school, welcoming all to the campus and inspiring all to learn.
Within each grade level pod, dedicated collaboration spaces create opportunities for student engagement outside of the traditional classroom. The grade level pods also follow the site’s natural topography, creating unique views to the tree canopy beyond from all classrooms. The material palette sets a calming environment for learning, bringing the outside in through wood tones and limestone accents.
