T. Clay Wood Elementary School
Prince William County Public Schools, Nokesville, Virginia
This LEED Silver, two-story school was constructed on a shared site with the new Patriot High School, marking the second use of this prtiotype design by the county. The building has a T- shaped plan that places the academic wing in a two-story configuration with the primary grades on the lower floor and the intermediate grades on the upper level. On the first floor, the media center is nestled in the corner at the front of the T to provide easy access to all students. The gymnasium and cafeteria are on axis with the main entry and share an operable partition so that the spaces can be converted to one large space with a platform for assemblies.
