To address the educational needs of a growing community, Columbia County School Board commissioned S3DG to develop designs for a new elementary school on rural Hereford Farm Road in Grovetown, GA.
The Board requested that the new school be an updated version of the design S3DG completed in 1994 for Euchee Creek Elementary.
The new school consists of a central core space containing the school's library, multipurpose gym, kitchen, dining area, art studio, music room, and administrative offices. The layout allows for maximum flexibility during planned school events and monitoring by the school staff.
Three wings, radiating from the core, house the educational classrooms for pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. The linear wings can be expanded economically as the student population grows. The exterior utilizes two colors of brick and glazed block to create visual interest. Vibrant interior colors create an exciting environment for learning.
