    Wing Luke Elementary Replacement Project

    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.
