Sheffield Elementary School
One of the first schools in CFBISD to implement the updated Educational Specifications supporting schools for the 21st century, Sheffield Elementary School is organized around a central learning courtyard. The courtyard features learning environments that support the various teaching environments around the school, with key connections for indoor and outdoor learning: Art Studios, Dining Commons, Learning Commons, and the Library Media Center.
The campus is organized into team teaching "learning villages" of 6 classrooms that surround a shared collaborative space. The Collab has a "pop up presentation" area and tiered learning environment. Each collab has direct access to the courtyard and to the playgrounds surrounding the campus. The gymnasium and cafeteria are clustered together to create a large shared tornado shelter that can accommodate the entire population of the school.
