Corona-Norco Unified School District
The new Rosa Parks Elementary School has become an icon for the new master planned community around it. The prominence of the clock tower and the sharp inverted gable form of the entry canopy creates a visual landmark and establishes a civic presence for the area. Assembly areas such as the multi-purpose, food service and media center are aligned along the front of the school, facilitating ease of access during school and after hours use. Adjacent to these spaces are Administration and Kindergarten area, for easy visitor access and excellent supervision of the child drop-off areas. Classroom clusters are expressed in 3 radiating wings housing lower, middle and upper grades. Each wing contains classrooms, student and staff rest rooms, staff workroom and offices and storage. Central to these wings is the technology classroom, for use by all grade levels. Design features stimulate the students’ imagination without breaking the project budget.
