DoDEA’s Parker Elementary School Opens

LTG (R) Ellis D. Parker Elementary School opened its doors to students and staff at Fort Rucker in Alabama. Located in the home of Army Aviation, the new school design incorporated aviation elements to represent the culture and significance of the military installation’s history. Parker Elementary School provides innovative learning opportunities with academic studios that encourage collaboration with flexible furniture and writeable desks. SchenkelShultz worked closely with Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to bring this 21st century educational design to life.
