Frederickson Elementary School

Frederickson Elementary School’s design responds to the site’s sloping topography. Terracing towards the back of the school are the music classroom, stage, cafeteria/commons, and gymnasium. Centrally located, the administration offices and library open to the two story entry lobby and main hallways. Administrators have a clear view of hallway activity, the covered play area, playground, bus loading area and the main entry.

Classrooms were designed to accommodate a variety of teaching styles with integrated technology and built-in storage solutions. An angled wall with oversized doors links two general classrooms, and clerestory windows provide additional daylight in several classrooms. Preschool and kindergarten classrooms were designed in pairs with shared support spaces and attached restrooms.
