The new 80,000-square-foot campus will, feature the school system’s first two-story elementary school building.

The elementary school is currently housed in a temporary campus next to Immaculate Conception Church in Denham Springs, at the end of Adoration Lane.

The newly designed two-story school will include 32 regular education classrooms, five special education classrooms, two computer laboratories and open collaborative spaces throughout the campus to bring learning outside traditional classroom areas. It will also include a new library and cafeteria.
