VLK Architects Celebrates the Rededication of Clear Creek ISD’s League City Elementary
League City, TX – On September 5th, VLK Architects attended the rededication ceremony commemorating the reopening of League City Elementary School. The new campus is a replacement of the original 57-year-old building and will house 900 students in pre-K to fifth grade.
Demonstrating his anticipation for the community, Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent, Clear Creek ISD said, “In a few minutes, you are going to get a glimpse of a wonderful piece of architecture in this school.The vision for this campus was to bring the world to League City and the students. I’m confident when I say ‘mission accomplished’ here at League City Elementary School.”
The newly designed League City Elementary School involved a deliberate process to consider the community’s needs. The site, rich with Oak trees, now uses outdoor areas to involve both students and adults in the learning process. Intentional incorporation of the existing skate park and an outdoor science habitat are two aspects of the new school that invite League City, as a community, to be part of the new building. Additional outdoor spaces dedicated to art, science,
and engineering/STEM classrooms have both grass and hard surfaces for healthy educational and recreational experiences. Purposeful collaboration areas are designed within the classroom wings to support teaching and learning, and varying student learning styles. The replacement school is designed to help facilitate district learning expectations, as well as offer opportunities for community involvement. Further supporting the neighborhoods it serves, the building also features a “Communities in School” space for continuing education courses for adults.
“The rededication ceremony was especially heartwarming”, said Melissa Fleming, VLK Principal. “It was a ‘Welcome Home’ celebration for many generations, past and present. To see the current students so excited to show off their new school was very special - that is what school architecture is all about.”
