Sánchez Elementary School
The passage of the 2017 Bond allocated $25 million to modernize an elementary school in the East Austin community. Austin ISD leadership listened to the key considerations and concerns of faculty, staff and families. In September 2018, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees voted to modernize Sánchez Elementary School (ES).
In fall 2019, while the building was under construction, students and staff from Sánchez shared the nearby Metz Elementary campus. In collaboration with the design and construction teams, the Campus Architectural Team made up of families, staff, and community members, provided input into the design of the modernized Sánchez. The result of this process is an inclusive school that celebrates bilingual Spanish-English culture and embodies the community’s values.
The new campus was completed in the fall of 2021 with updated building systems and features reflecting the latest green sustainable construction. The 58,600-square-foot school features: welcoming learning spaces, state-of-the-art technology and a community room. The learning spaces encourage collaboration and invite interaction between students and teachers.
