Diamond View Elementary

Greenacres, FL

Diamond View Elementary repeats our one-story elementary school prototype and has a student capacity of 998,  grades K-5.  The facility is composed of two structures, a 103,000 SF main building and a 1,500 SF field structure.  The facility is compactly designed around an optional “hurricane shelter” core with a perimeter of “universal classrooms”.  The optional hurricane shelter core is a windowless structure designed to withstand winds up to 150 mph.  The hurricane core contains the large common area spaces such as art, music, dining, multi-purpose and media.  The “universal classroom” is a 1,200 SF educational module designed to accommodate all educational programs, including kindergarten, primary, intermediate, exceptional education and skills labs.  The facility is designed to be adaptable to various site configurations through the use of “quad packs,” a group of four classrooms which connect to the academic core.
