We're looking forward to entering the next phase of design as we select final interior finishes!
Thank you for joining us at the community open house for the new Carlsbad Elementary School. On February 27, we met with the community to discuss the design progress of CMS Elementary School #3. We received great feedback and suggestions to consider as we move forward. We appreciate your participation, and we will continue to post design updates!
The new Carlsbad Elementary School #3 will combine and replace the Joe Stanley Smith and Craft Elementary School facilities. The new school is scheduled to house a total of 627 students attending grades 1-5. The site of the new elementary school campus will be east of the Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC), and have a Maximum Allowable Construction Cost not exceeding $22,034,224. The design team will be led by Dekker/Perich/Sabatini (D/P/S) and Mitchell & Cruse Architecture, LLC (MCA).
