Tambark Creek Elementary School

Tambark Creek
Tambark Creek Tambark Creek
Tambark Creek Elementary is designed to accommodate approximately 550 K-5 students in a two-story, 78,000 square foot facility which includes classrooms, an administrative office, library, gymnasium, a cafeteria, kitchen, and covered play area. Outdoor amenities include parking, playfields, courtyard and neighboring wetland. Dykeman Architects in partnership with the Everett Public Schools facilitated a series of six workshops that were designed to help inform the Educational Specifications for Tambark Creek. The workshops included school tours, bubble diagram exercises, focus groups with elementary school staff and administrators, numeric programming, and adjacency diagramming exercises. The process was further informed by a meeting with elementary school principals regarding educational delivery goals and with District administrative staff. The guiding principles shaped the building form, layout and building materials developed by the Ed Spec Committee.

Learning Objectives:
  • Access to the wetlands and exterior plaza allows for the extension of the teaching and learning environment beyond the classroom walls.
  • Visibility and transparency of the learning neighborhoods promotes connectivity.
  • The school’s central hub supports community partnerships and provides a space for collaboration and celebration.
  • The school’s learning environments meets the various needs and learning styles of its students.

Transforming a vacant grocery store into an empowering educational space housing two ends of the PK-12 educational spectrum—a 300-student alternative high school and a 680-student early learning center—was a challenge rich in opportunity. The high school is broken into three programs: a non-traditional, small-environment high school; an online high school program called Flex; and School to Life—a post-high school special needs program transitioning students to independence. The early learning center provides a safe and secure environment for families who may be experiencing formal education for the first time. Many of the students are low income or developmentally delayed, requiring additional support services, including periodic family meetings. The building provides intentional crossover spaces, encouraging the two programs to build off each other. The barriers these students had faced throughout the years in other school facilities are broken down so that they feel proud and secure in their new environment.

Learning Objectives:
  • Providing clear circulation between and within the two programs while also celebrating the inherent volume of the building.
  • Transparency and connection among educational spaces, the commons, breakout rooms, and the Flex suite.
  • The symbiotic relationship of these programs is facilitated by the built environment.
  • Breakout and congregation spaces promote informal educational conversations.
