Raymond A. Geiger Elementary SchoolProject Architect:
Location: Lewiston, ME
A portion of the staff and students at Montello School combined with all of the staff and students at Pettingill Elementary School to populate Raymond A. Geiger Elementary School. This new $15 million LEED registered school includes a full-size gymnasium, cafeteria, library, music room and stage which are connected to the double-story Y-shaped classroom wings. Ranging from Pre-K to 6th Grade, the current student body is 700 and includes a diverse population with over 10 languages spoken. Each grade consists of a cluster of four classrooms to encourage team teaching. Small group or team rooms are provided for each grade to allow for flexibility and break-out space. Rooms for special services are integrated within the classroom wings to support the school’s inclusionary model.
