The new T. Harry Garrett Elementary School replaces the original 1950's building on the same site. The existing gymnasium was built for use by the school and the County Recreation Department but was inaccessible.
The new design provided enclosed access to the gym, as well as handicap accessibility. The school is two stories with classrooms, a media center, an art studio, a music room, and a cafeteria. The exterior is a multicolored brick intended to be reminiscent of the Grand Canyon.
The interior corridors feature a "river" running to the outside in terrazzo patterns.
