A new campus remarks a 1940s-era school for 21st century learning.
Bishop Elementary School needed a makeover to provide a healthy, high-tech environment for modern learners. Given a clean slate, AMS created a new campus with a space-efficient mix of single- and two-story buildings that open to outdoor learning and play areas. Adjoining GEN7 two-story buildings are the centerpiece, offering both open and controlled access in classroom wings connected by a central clock tower—a site-built element that honors the region’s California Mission heritage. Large low-E windows and Solatubes make classrooms completely daylit, filled with clean, filtered air circulated by high-efficiency HVAC systems. Connectivity for multiple digital devices provides critical support for the District’s 1:1 technology initiative.
- Bishop is Sunnyvale’s first two-story classroom building
- Mixing building sizes and styles optimizes space on a tight site
- Site-built stair overhangs and clock tower personalize the aesthetic
