The booming population in Pasco County has enabled the area’s School District to embark on multiple K-12 design and construction projects. Having enjoyed a decades-long working relationship with the district, Harvard Jolly Architecture is excited to be a part of the $200+ M projects including Pasco Elementary School “W”.
An adapted version of Harvard Jolly’s Elementary School prototype, the 762 student school will not only reduce class sizes to their capacities, but provide students with a state-of-the-art education.
The new school will fit on nine acres of land with outdoor play areas and adequate parking and traffic loops. Additional features include art and music rooms, kitchen and cafeteria/multi-purpose room with stage and a teacher dining area. The 21st century media center showcases research-based learning and technology enrichment to enhance the learning process.
Collaborative learning is emphasized in the floor plan where classrooms are connected to a common collaboration lab. Individual classrooms are connected to each other to allow team teaching. These components encourage communication among students and teachers and foster social learning.
