Storm Lake Early Elementary School

Storm Lake, IA




133,000 SF

Storm Lake Early Elementary School is the embodiment of the intentional criteria established by key stakeholder groups and our planning team. Grade-level classroom neighborhoods are situated around flexible discovery areas that provide additional education space for students. They promote a strong sense of community and the opportunity to foster relationships and collaboration for educators and students. Natural daylight and views to outdoor learning environments tie together the indoor and outdoor learning opportunities for students. The commons/cafeteria, media center, STEAM room, and music room are visually connected to the main circulation path of the school and provide spaces to showcase student work.

​Phase I of the early elementary school totals 68,000 SF, serving 300 kindergarten students. Future phases will support 14 pre-kindergarten classrooms and 10 first-grade classrooms. Upon completion of all phases, the facility will have a capacity of 940 students.

DLR Group provided architecture, engineering, planning, and interiors services.​
