Radio Park Elementary School
State College Area School District
State College Area School District embarked on a comprehensive assessment of their elementary school facilities to evaluate options to possibly consolidate schools and engage the community to discuss how best to transform these facilities into 21st Century Learning Environments. The study concluded that best path forward was to modernize two schools and build a new elementary school to replace the current Houserville Elementary School.
Currently under construction, Radio Park Elementary School is being modernized to and re-programmed with SCASD educational staff to accommodate not only the current 550 student educational program but also incorporate flexibility for the building to evolve educationally over the coming 20 years. To this end, classrooms are designed for flexibility whether they are used for 1st grade, 5th grade or special education. Classrooms are organized into educational “houses” grouping two grades together including small group instruction, faculty support, storage and restroom facilities directly adjacent to the classrooms to facilitate quick movement between education and activities increasing educational instruction time.
