The reconstruction of Marshall Elementary School brought this 60-year-old campus and the neighboring Anaheim community into the 21st Century. As part of the District’s Facilities Master Plan, completed by Studio W, this project provided state-of-the-art facilities to better support the educational needs of the community.
The small 4.5-acre school site is maximized by utilizing multi-story construction, efficient site circulation and joint-use of a city park for outdoor play areas. The 100,000 square foot campus is comprised of three two-story educational buildings and one high-bay single-story multi-use building. Externally, the campus is located at the corner of two streets, making vehicular access to the school ideal to separate parking, main drop-off, bus drop-off and kindergarten drop-off. Internally, the campus is organized around a central courtyard, while a two-story circulation spine links the various building wings with outdoor common areas.
The architectural style of the campus is neo-mission in keeping with the district design standard and local residential context. This newly reconstructed campus is able to support up to 1,000 elementary age students for the next 50 years.
