Charlotte East K-8 Language Academy

While providing relief to the local elementary and middle school, this project also encourages social and economic development at the old Eastland Mall site.  The school  accommodates 1180 students, contains 54 classrooms and is situated on an 11-acre site.

Building program elements include two-story classroom wings, a large Lobby/ Commons space with tiered collaboration seating, Media Center, Gymnasium, Cafeteria with an attached multi-purpose room and stage, Dance Studio, Music Rooms, and Art Classrooms. Offices are located along the Lobby Commons, allowing secure after school access to these spaces without compromising the security of the Classroom wings. Group Instruction Spaces are integrated into each grade level with flexible break-out collaboration spaces that accommodate group-based learning while a Maker Space provides for hands-on creativity and exploration.
