Barkley Elementary School, constructed by SBH & CORE Joint Venture, is a $45.2 million project that created a new state-of-the-art school with room for 741 students. The school’s design incorporates a neighborhood type layout in which nine different neighborhoods for Pre-K through fifth grade are each made up of a central learning hub surrounded by four learning studios, a group room, a one-to-one room and a staff planning room. The design also includes an occupational and physical therapy area and special education support spaces.
