An Iconic Learning Stair Supports
Gathering and Wayfinding

Meadow Ridge Elementary School

Meadow Ridge Elementary School is designed for 700 students, with 24 state-of-the-art classrooms arranged in a courtyard configuration, capturing views of the adjacent hills. The two-story classroom wing is light-filled and includes a central, teaching stair for gathering and wayfinding. The elementary school design balances safety and security with public use and access through clear organization and zoning. This project was designed as a “sister” school for the adjacent Timber Ridge School. It was hard bid and came in under budget, which allowed the district to accept all project alternates, including an auxiliary gym, four additional classrooms and a covered play structure.
