  The design involved an extensive community process which influenced the design decisions. The school community placed a strong emphasis on the arts, which is incorporated into the building.  The design is a two-story brick veneer building to blend in with the surrounding neighborhood. The building materials are sympathetic to the original school, with a small amount of stone veneer, salvaged from the original buildings, as an accent near the entrance.

  GSBS included daylighting principles and energy-efficient systems for the school. The sustainable architectural attributes-in addition to saving operating and maintenance cost, extending the life of the building, and providing a better learning environment-will serve as learning opportunities for the students.

GSBS completed the design to replace Beacon Heights School, which was built in 1952. The old school was demolished and replaced by the new school on the same site. The site slopes almost 40í from one corner to the other, challenging the two separate drop-off and pick-up areas that are required for their unique
school program.
