Carver Elementary School

ST. MARY'S COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS | Great Mills, MD

The original George Washington Carver Elementary School in St. Mary’s County, a prototype elementary school design based on grade-based clusters, provides a central core with shared specialty education rooms, including those for science and fine arts. Outdoor instructional courtyards are easily accessible to all classrooms. During the design process, architects met with Gifted and Talented students to teach about the construction industry and process as students designed their dream school.

Project Highlights

  • First new elementary school in the county in several decades that required new ed-spec for design, replicable on multiple sites
  • Provided a wide variety of instructional options
  • Classroom clusters include an adjacent instructional commons and multiple support spaces for each cluster
