Pillar Falls Elementary
Built to support recent growth in Twin Falls, Idaho, the 70,000 square foot facility is designed for 650 students and includes four classrooms for each grade, plus specialty space such as a special needs suite. Other notable features include small-group learning spaces and a multi-use auditorium stair for use by students and the community.
Special attention was given during design to safety, security, natural light, durable materials, and cost-effective systems. Simple circulation maximizes efficiency, simplifies lock-down security, and allows for easy supervision. The site was carefully planned to separate buses, staff parking, visitor parking, and student drop-off.
