Charles Pinckney Elementary School houses 800 students in grades K-5. The 120,000-square-foot facility includes spaces supporting core academics, special education, administrative functions, fine arts classes, a media center, and computer labs.
The project’s master plan complements the adjacent Cario Middle School, creating an attractive campus within Mount Pleasant’s Park West subdivision. The shared campus allows both schools to be served by a single kitchen, which supports two separate dining areas in a multipurpose building. All the campus buildings are oriented around a large central green space.
