Galaxy E3 Elementary School

Boynton Beach, Fl

Galaxy Elementary has invented a new direction for K-5 instruction in Palm Beach County, the nation’s 11th largest school district. This will be the first CHOICE (magnet) elementary school specifically designed to provide E3 learning to the District’s underprivileged and minority populations. The school curriculum will focus on “Energy, Environment and Engineering” and include a focus on science and math. To complement the curriculum, the school will also aim to be the first LEED Platinum school in the country to integrate the curriculum into building and site design. Our programming effort has created a new generation of DaVinci Studios (elementary science labs), Learning Studios (classrooms), and Wonderment Spaces (skills labs) to evolve the new curriculum. These new learning spaces will then be introduced to other elementary schools in the District.

The project itself involves the modernization and construction of an approximately 109,000 GSF, 751 student station elementary school and includes the replacement of an adjacent 4-acre city park facility. Two existing classroom buildings of +/- 10,000 GSF will be reused as ancillary space for teacher professional development.
