HMC Architects was selected to lead the design of Bakersfield City School District’s (BCSD) new elementary school in Bakersfield, California. Located on the corner of Paladino Drive and Masterson Street, the new TK-6 elementary school will support the growing East Bakersfield community.

Despite declining enrollment in the district, the East Bakersfield community is expanding with major developments, and by 2028, the closest elementary school will be sorely impacted. The new school will support Bakersfield’s communities with a safe, flexible, and collaborative space and the innovative design will support new technologies and a growing population, within budget.

Design has begun and the project will be complete in 2028.
