A new elementary school which will serve 682 students, grades PK-5, in the densely populated South Norwalk Neighborhood will be constructed as the first neighborhood school for students and families of South Norwalk in more than 40 years.
The design process began in Fall 2022.

An advisory group of City officials, school administrators, and community representatives is also available as a resource to the team throughout the design and construction phases. At this time, construction is scheduled to begin in Spring 2024, for occupancy in late Summer 2025 and the start of the 2025-2026 school year. However, the timeline may evolve as the project progresses.
Our third workshop is a forum for the community to share their feedback and preferences as the design is developed. Floor plans, site plans, design elements and precedent images will be on display. After the presentation, the floor is yours! We want to listen and understand what comments you may have on the site and building plans.
The design includes spaces for academics and community use. The academic spaces include general classrooms, breakout spaces, small group rooms, resource and special education rooms, teacher workrooms, and outdoor learning areas, all in support of a modern, 21st Century learning environment …
