The school is set back behind Alden Dow's parkway reserve on the portion of Plantation Drive exempted from TX 288. The one-story school is a flat-roofed building with an exposed concrete frame that sprouts shallow gables to mark the recessed entrance bay. The theme of spatial recession within the structural frame is used to articulate individual classrooms.
