Flippin Elementary School

flippin, arkansas

Flippin Public School’s existing elementary buildings had reached the end of their usable life. High repair and utility costs, a disconnected layout, and the lack of a secure perimeter had resulted in a campus that was no longer efficient to operate. In addition to maximizing natural light and using sustainable materials, the new building provides multiple levels of security for the school. A welcoming, administrative “front door” orients guests and ensures that all visitors have to check in at the office before entering campus. Additionally, the centrally-located PE facility can serve as a safe room in the event of a natural disaster.
