Cassell & Riverheads Elementary School – Prototype

Augusta County Public Schools
Open Gallery

Augusta County Public Schools engaged Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates (CRA Architects) to study the options of renovating the existing “florida style” Riverheads Elementary School or constructing a new replacement elementary school.  The School Board, in reviewing the costs proposed, construction costs, and potential disruption to the educational program, decided to proceed with designing a prototype elementary school.


The 815 student prototype design features a “Main Street” concept with break-out / support areas. Natural daylight is incorporated throughout and efficient and effective circulation / sightlines.  Other program space includes 36 classrooms, 4 small group instruction rooms, library, gymnasium, cafeteria, kitchen, and administrative suite.

CRA has always been responsive to our requests. They have worked with us to design buildings that are efficient and cost effective while not compromising quality.
