Altman + Barrett Architects
The new Jones-Wheat Elementary School is a replacement school for the old Jones-Wheat Elementary School that was built in 1954. The new school is approximately twice the size of the old school and has a number of modern features and furnishings that were designed with the feedback of the Jones-Wheat teachers.
The school includes forty-five new classrooms, two computer labs, media center, gymnasium, administrative offices, and a fully functional kitchen and cafeteria. All of the classrooms come equipped with a media projector and smart board. The media center/library includes features designed to assist teachers and librarians to facilitate group learning and research.
