Kanab Elementary School is a new elementary school designed by NWLA to provide a modern and inviting learning environment for students in grades K-5. The school is located in Kanab, Utah, a small town surrounded by beautiful geography and striking geological features. The school’s design was inspired by the surrounding landscape, and the building’s exterior features a variety of textures and colors that evoke the natural beauty of the area. The interior of the school is designed to be flexible and adaptable to the needs of both teachers and students. The classrooms are spacious and well-equipped, with ample storage and space for desks, chairs, and a teaching wall. The breakout spaces in each wing of the school provide additional space for students to collaborate and learn in a more informal setting. The administration suite is compact and centrally located, making it easy for staff to communicate and collaborate. The library is a large and open space that can be used for a variety of activities. The school’s design also includes a number of features that are intended to promote safety and security. The gym is located at the south end of the building, away from the main entrance with a single, lockable set of doors separating the gym and its entry vestibule from the rest of the school.
