Santo Domingo Elementary School

Bernalillo Public Schools, Santo Domingo Pueblo, NM

VHGA collaborated with the District, Pueblo leaders, the community, and other stakeholders to plan and design the new school.   The design integrates Pueblo stories, culture, sacred views, and design details important to the community.  The new K-8 school building smoothly integrates with an existing classroom building and gym.   The PreK-5 grades and grades 6-8 are in separate classroom wings that radiate from the school’s core facilities.   Student safety and security is addressed by new roadways and pedestrian pathways, a paved bus drop-off / pick-up area, and new parking.
