Originally constructed in the 1930s, the Onondaga Nation school had seen only one significant capital improvement project in the last 80 years. The school functions as a P-8 feeder into the local high school, but also, as the core of the Onondaga community. A refined focus on culturally rich education has resulted in increase enrollment and a need to develop new space that supports contemporary educational goals. The proposed improvements strike a balance between these educational goals, the community culture, and a desire to maintain environmental balance for future generations. The proposed addition reconnects the school and the site, supports sustainability initiatives and enhances safety and security.
