Rankin Elementary

New Construction – gross 69,080 sqft. (UNDER CONSTRUCTION)

The 69,080 square foot Rankin Elementary school architecturally compliments the adjacent CADCO designed Rankin High School completed in 2017.  The two-level school features a large atrium used as learning spaces, with colors and designs used to stimulate the learning environment for elementary age students.  The elementary will incorporate a high degree of learning technology through the use of video walls etc.  A clearly designed facility entry compliments the security vestibule that will maximize student safety.  Clever use of materials and interior designs promote the design aesthetic while providing low maintenance required care.  Scheduled for a 2022 completion, the Rankin Elementary will be the showcase elementary school in the west Texas geographic region.
