Atlas Public Schools opened its elementary school with 118 kindergarten and first grade students for the 2021-22 school year and plans to grow to full enrollment by 2026 by adding a grade each year until it reaches 600 students in kindergarten through 5th grade.
Atlas’ elementary school is currently located in a short-term leased facility at 2845 / 2837 Washington Avenue in Midtown (Central Baptist Church).
JEMA has been selected by Atlas to conduct Building Analysis, Programming and Design. Atlas is looking at a 4-story, 128,000 square foot former office building to relocate its elementary school as well expand to serve up to 525 6-8th grade students (for a total possible building enrollment of up to 1,125 students). Phase 1 will include the acquisition of the property, change of use building code required upgrades, replacement of the existing mechanical system and minor fit-out of the first two floors to accommodate up to 600 elementary school students. The second/third phases timing / scope is TBD.
