Ceres Unified School District: Lucas, Patricia Kay Beaver and Walt L. Hanline Elementary Schools

Ceres, CA

Project Overview

Three-peat design fast-tracks a series of schools on a limited budget.

The Ceres Unified School District had an aggressive expansion plan: add two new magnet schools and the region’s first dual-language academy, built concurrently and installed back-to-back. AMS replicated the same turnkey design on all three multi-building campuses, combining quality materials, large view windows and efficient HVAC systems to create bright, comfortable learning space for students with significant economies of scale for CUSD. Each building features a custom detached metal roof with a steep pitch—a high-value upgrade that gives exteriors a stick-built appearance and makes interiors feel airy and expansive. The flexibility to individualize color palettes gives each campus its own identity within the District aesthetic.    

  • Pitched roofs allow high ceilings, giving classrooms a larger, lofty feel
  • Front and side overhangs provide shade and shelter from weather
  • Brick veneer wainscoting and colored metal roofs customize each site
