Elementary School No. 57 Cypress-Fairbanks ISD | Cypress, TX

Elementary School No. 57 will be located within the Bridgeland Master Planned Community in the Parkland Village Section. It is located on the eastern side of the master planned community off of Tuckerton Road west of Fry Road. The design of this facility is a new prototype and will serve approximately 1,040 students from Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade or 1,120 students with the alternate Pre-Kindergarten addition.

The new facility is a one and two-story building totaling approximately 119,000 sq ft or 125,000 sq ft with an alternate Pre-Kindergarten addition. The site will include parking for staff and visitors of 138 spaces, a concrete paved play area and 1/8 mile walking path, outdoor learning and play areas.

The design process began in June of 2020, and a CFISD Leadership Committee reviewed five distinct design options; two options were selected for further development. As the design process proceeded, options that combined several elements that were desired from many of the previous reviews were assimilated into one floor plan that was approved to move forward into the design development phase. The plan is a two-story academic concept organized around six distinct wings or academic pods; three on the first floor and three on the second floor with science located centrally on both. The noisy and more active areas such as the cafeteria, gym, music and art are all located together beside the academic wings to provide separation of quieter academic areas from the more active spaces (this is also the location for the bus drop-off). Administration areas and the library are located at the front of the facility and become the main entry for visitors and parent drop-off.

+ Master planning was completed by IBI Group for this district.

“Flexibility for instructional delivery, natural daylight in classrooms and reducing energy consumption are all incorporated into the design of the new elementary school which is designed in compliance with TX-CHPS (Collaborative for High Performance Schools). Major elements incorporated into the design include educational displays and demonstration areas, limiting storm water runoff, reduction of potable water usage, conservation of energy and the use of using low-emitting, rapidly renewable materials.”
