John W. Chorley Elementary School

Closed in 2014.

Chorley Elementary School is divided into four wings, each of which can be totally opened or divided into separate classrooms. The classrooms are defined by levels stepping up the hill rather than walls, thus allowing great flexibility for the teaching program. The school is intimately scaled and never revealed as a whole.
