Mt. Horeb Elementary School

2013 Tennessee School Boards Association Award


Cope Architecture provided design, project management and construction administration services for a new K-6 elementary school on 22.9 acres for 650 students in 76,467 gross square feet of space. The facility is planned for ease of growth for additional classroom space. Teacher planning areas and student toilets are provided for each wing. The design allows the community to make use of the gymnasium, cafeteria, library, and other communal spaces after school hours while still allowing for secured classrooms. A secure point of entry is controlled by the administration area. Design also encompasses extensive energy and water saving features.
