High Tech Elementary in Point Loma at Liberty Station is wrapping up its first year in its new(ish) facility. High Tech Elementary Building 271 is located on the site of an existing former military athletic facility located at the corner Cushing Road and Farragut Road. Portions of the existing structure were incorporated by varying degrees into the military facility turned elementary school.
The 61,000 sf project includes 18 classrooms, and accessory uses such as physical education areas, a large multipurpose room and school administrative offices. The classrooms are separated by mobile walls, allowing teachers to utilize both small group and large group learning experiences. These flexible classrooms surround a two-story light-filled atrium which is the central gathering space for the school.
The public charter school serves 420 students from kindergarten to fifth grade and complements the other schools owned and operated by High Tech High within Liberty Station.
