What We Built

The community-centered building is organized around a core that includes the cafeteria, performance stage, and media center. Each academic wing connects to this core, providing easy access, staff supervision, improved circulation, and increased interactions among students of all grade levels.


How We Built It

American Constructors built Blazier Elementary School following the AISD vision of creating modern learning environments for their 21st-century students. The school incorporates flexible spaces, allowing for collaborative, interdisciplinary, and project-driven learning. Shifting away from the traditional classroom configuration, the learning areas  encourage mobility and invite interaction between students. In addition, the school uses integrated technology as an essential tool for student research, analysis and communication, as well as, the integration of multiple spaces to support community needs.

All building systems and features will reflect the latest in design advances, fully addressing accessibility, sustainable (or “green”) construction, and the provision of a healthy, safe, and secure environment for students, teachers, and staff.
