The reconstruction of Marshall Elementary School brought this 60-year-old school and the neighboring Anaheim community into the 21st Century. As part of the District’s Facilities Master Plan, completed by BCA, this project provided state-of-the-art facilities to better support the educational needs of the community.
The small 4.5-acre school site is maximized by utilizing multi-story construction, efficient site circulation and joint-use of a city park for outdoor play areas. The 100,000 square foot campus is comprised of three two-story educational buildings and one high-bay single story multi-use building. Externally, the campus is located at the corner of two streets, making vehicular access to the school ideal to separate parking, main drop-off, bus drop-off and kindergarten drop-off. Internally, the campus is organized around a central courtyard, while a two-story circulation spine links the various building wings with outdoor common areas.
The architectural style of the campus is neo-mission in keeping with the district design standard and local residential context. This reconstructed campus is able to support up to 1,000 elementary age students for the next 50 years.
