McCall Elementary Greening

It's elementary! Our Collaborative design team began their project to redesign McCall Elementary's schoolyard by asking students, teachers, and parents about what they wanted. "More green!" was first on their wish list, followed closely by outdoor classrooms. See the survey infographic below for their votes.

Our conceptual design offers McCall a coordinated strategy for greening and connecting the 6th and 7th Street sides of its schoolyard. The larger 7th Street side combines areas for active play with quieter places like a softscape corner and a peace path. The 6th Street side gains new life with outdoor classrooms for science and art. Opening up the entrances with windows, new signage, and planting will perk up the school's nondescript entrances and link the two sides of the schoolyard.
