Big Sandy School

-A A +A
1968, Bourn and Dulaney. Southwest corner of Fox and Pueblo sts., .5 mile south of U.S. 24

This red brick, one-story school for kinder-garten through twelfth grade is designed to keep students of the same age group together and avoid cross traffic among classrooms. Four round “pods” with cedar shake roofs are connected by short passages around a center pod, forming a cloverleaf. Each of the outlying pods houses grades of a different age group, while the center contains conference rooms and administrative offices.
