Carson Elementary is a Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade project designed for 550 students. The three-story building was completed in the first phase of the state of Ohio School Facilities Commission design guidelines. The existing urban site was utilized for optimum playgrounds, parking and athletic fields.
The building has five groupings of four classrooms, each surrounding an extended learning space for multiple educational programs. A state-of-the-art technology system is supported from a dynamic media center, all with community availability in mind. The new gymnasium and dining room are centered with a two-sided stage for performances, lectures and community events.
