East Stroudsburg School District | New Elementary School
Buchart Horn Architects (BHA) designed a new 121,044-SF K-5 Elementary School on a site purchased by East Stroudsburg Area School District. The new facility accommodates 900 regular education students and 150 special education students for a total of 1,050 students. Future expansion areas will be shown at various locations that can increase the capacity to 1,250.
The plans were modeled after Lincoln Elementary School in York, PA (also designed by BHA).
The building is three stories plus a basement for mechanical equipment and storage. The site includes parking for 20 buses, 120 staff/visitors and handicap, parent drop-off area, and a loading and service dock. One exterior play area is exclusively for kindergarten students and two play areas are for grades 1 through 5.
The building includes a gymnasium which is used during and after school and required a separate lobby and toilet facilities. The project site is located along Rt. 447 in Smithfield Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania and includes two parcels totaling 24.4 acres.
