Eastern Carver County Elementary School

Chaska, MN | Education

Overview

To support a growing student body, a new elementary school was built in Eastern Carver County with flexible, open, and enhanced learning spaces.


Opportunity

With student enrollment surpassing original projections and outdated facility amenities, Carver Elementary School needed to meet the needs of a growing community, provide options for future expansion, and modernize the classroom experience for 21st century learning.

Solution

Eastern County Carver Schools passed a bond referendum in 2015, allowing facility support for its growing population. The new two-story building includes 30 traditional classrooms designed around collaborative learning spaces, two full-size gymnasiums, and a modern cafeteria accentuating natural daylight to accommodate future growth. A focal point of the building is the shared “Learning Commons” at the core of each neighborhood of classrooms. These “Learning Commons” are designed to be flexible and allow for classrooms to open, expand, and collaborate easily.


“When I walk into the building in the morning, it’s fresh, it’s new, it’s exciting; it’s really a great place to be.”

- June Johnson, Principal, Eastern Carver County Elementary School
