Things are Looking Up at Roosevelt Elementary

Set to open in the fall of 2015, this completely rebuilt elementary school has to accommodate a large student population within a small geographic footprint. To address this issue, planners decided to build up.


Two-story buildings are providing almost 100,000 square feet of administration and classroom space, double the size of the old permanent single-story buildings on campus.


A rooftop playground (above a staff parking structure) will add about 50 percent more area for recess and physical education.


To blend in with the historic flavor of the neighborhood, the design of the new school honors the original art deco style of architecture. A 100-year old wooden door and photos of the old wall murals will be displayed in the school library as reminders of Roosevelt Elementary’s long, proud history.


In the center of campus, an amphitheater will provide an outdoor gathering place, while a new multipurpose room could be used as an auditorium for indoor student performances and events.


The entire campus is built with energy savings in mind, including automatic dimming lights and temperature-controlled classrooms with large windows to optimize daylight.


The latest technology will enable teachers to project images from their hand-held devices, laptops or computers onto a screen in front of each classroom and the entire campus will have wi-fi capability.


New pickup and dropoff lanes are designed to reduce traffic congestion in the neighborhood and increase safety.

Upcoming Projects

Future Measure K projects in the early planning phases include a $40 million renovation of Renaissance High School for the Arts and conversion of the Hill Classical Middle School campus to a small high school, replicating the California Academy of Mathematics and Science, a nationally honored LBUSD school.
The former Butler Performing Arts School will be converted to a small high school, to open in fall 2017.
Plans are underway to convert the former Jordan Freshman Academy into yet another small high school.
