Portsmouth Downtown Elementary
Portsmouth City School District
The Elementary houses 1,000 students in a 161,536 sf building. The facility is multi-story, with the older students on the upper floor and the younger students on the ground level. Common spaces such as the cafetorium and gymnasium are located adjacent to the classroom levels so the different grade levels can access them without disturbing other classes. Playgrounds are also separated for age appropriate activities. The building features an abundance of natural light and energy efficient systems.
