Rosemont Park Elementary School opened to students in August 2011. The $12 million school was part of the $593.6 million bond package approved by voters in November 2007. It was constructed on the corner of 6th Avenue and W. Seminary Drive, next door to Rosemont Middle School.
The 80,000 square-foot facility serves approximately 650-750 students in Pre-K through 5th grades. Academic spaces support grade level instruction, science, art and music, as well as computer and special education programs. A bus loop and visitor parking are located at the front of the building; parent drop-off and faculty parking are between the two schools.
The activity room serves for physical education and with the stage, serves as an assembly space. High windows across the ends of the gymnasium and the cafeteria floods those spaces with natural light. High storefront windows light the stairwells at each end of the building, and classrooms have natural lighting from colored and clear glass. Environmentally, the reflective and insulated roof, the geothermal mechanical system, the insulated glass and shading devices, and the energy-efficient appliances contribute to the school's energy savings. The school’s unique design uses a colorful glass façade to provide a playful view from the corner intersection. Windows in the library provide views of the outdoor plaza and the adjacent playgrounds. The building is filled with playful colors and natural lighting, creating a stimulating, exciting place for children to learn.
The school was designed by Architect Perkins + Will, built by General Contractor Steele & Freeman - Pegasus JV, with AECOM serving as Program Manager.
