Hope Elementary School first opened its doors in 1986 and has experienced significant growth in recent years. Designed in a central courtyard concept, the school currently has 18 portables and permanent buildings that are in need of upgrades. In order to continue serving the current and projected student population, the Carlsbad Unified School District is prioritizing the modernization of multiple elementary schools, including Hope Elementary School.
Rachlin Partners is currently serving as Architect for the $19.5 million modernization effort. The project encompasses the removal of 10 relocatable buildings, the construction of four new one-story buildings consisting of (16) classrooms, the modernization of five existing one-story buildings consisting of (12) classrooms, the expansion and modernization of an existing one-story Administration / MPR building, the construction of two lunch shelters, the installation of new playground equipment and related site work.
When the project is complete, students at Hope Elementary School will enjoy modern learning environments, including new regular and STEAM classrooms, an expanded multipurpose room, and a renovated library. These modernized facilities will allow the Carlsbad Unified School District to continue providing high-quality education and prepare students to succeed in college and careers.
