    About the Project

    Opened in 1971, the Wing Luke Elementary building had several major systems and structural challenges. The existing Wing Luke Elementary School will be replaced with a new school building, which was designed in close collaboration with the school community. It will celebrate and facilitate education and programming with a modern school designed to 21st century standards.

    The new 82,000-square-foot school is designed for up to 500 elementary students, grades K-5. It will include six classrooms with toilets for kindergarten or grade 1, 16 classrooms for grades 1-5, four special education classrooms, one resource room, one occupational/physical therapy space, an art room, a music classroom, two early learning spaces, four learning commons, small group learning areas, a gymnasium, a library, a lunchroom/commons, and administration spaces. The core facilities (administrative, commons, gym) are sized to support 650 students, and the campus Master Plan includes a design for a 150-student addition.

    During construction, the Wing Luke Elementary school community is located at an interim site at Original Van Asselt School.
