More of a good thing
The rapidly growing Clovis Unified School District needed a new elementary school, and fast. The site happened to be a few blocks from Virginia Boris Elementary School, a TETER project they loved, so they asked us to reuse the plans with some modifications—a larger kindergarten drop-off, a different mechanical system, and finishes throughout that make it its own, distinct school. Beloved former teacher and superintendent Janet Young’s words are featured on the school’s walls, honoring the difference she made in so many lives during her career. And the rush part? That worked out pretty well: the school went from contract to completion in just under two years, even though COVID-19 hit halfway through construction.
