To continue delivering top notch educational facilities for its students, Roger (Ark.) Public Schools selected DLR Group and local architecture firm Hight-Jackson Associates to design a new 90,000 SF elementary school for 750 students. In 2010, the northwest Arkansas community of Rogers was recognized as one of Money Magazines' Top 10 Places to Live. Part of the criteria was quality of schools.
The new school is the second facility DLR Group will design for the district. DLR Group also partnered with Rogers Public Schools to design its award-winning 290,530 SF high school which opened in 2001.
"DLR Group is excited to continue our relationship with Rogers Public Schools," said DLR Group Principal Kevin Greischar, AIA, and Kansas City K-12 Practice Leader. "Our design solution will provide an engaging learning environment to serve the needs of Rogers' young learners."
The elementary school will be located on 10 acres in the southwestern part of the city, and will open in 2013.
