Blazier Elementary School Intermediate Site
Located in southeast Austin, Blazier Elementary School Intermediate Site is the first facility specifically designed to serve grades four, five and six in Austin ISD. As part of the 2017 Bond Program, this project provides immediate relief to overcapacity at the campus.
Throughout the process, campus leadership and the design team engaged stakeholders. Community members expressed their desire for a campus that could help connect and build relationships among students and their teachers. The result is a community-centered building organized around a core that includes the cafeteria, performance stage and media center. The building wings connect to the core, providing easy access, staff supervision, improved circulation and increased interactions among students of all grade levels.
The separate bus and caregiver drop-off locations provide increased safety and improved traffic flow, while parking for teachers, team members and events is near the athletics area. The school is connected via sidewalks and crosswalks to the nearby Goodnight Ranch and McKinney Heights neighborhoods. This creates a welcoming, walkable campus for students and families.
The Blazier Elementary School Intermediate Site campus is the first phase of a strategic plan to transform the site into an educational village, which serves pre-K through eighth grade. The 132,000-square-foot campus has capacity for 696 students as part of the first phase. Potential expansions of the gym and middle school wing could increase capacity to 1,100 in the future.
