Crofton Elementary


The 61,835 square foot, 350 student capacity, Crofton Elementary School jumps out as a place of learning and fun to anyone driving through the small community of Crofton, Kentucky.  The “Cougar Crayons” on the exterior of the building are carried throughout the interior creating a lively atmosphere as well as marking important areas such as the gymnasium, media center, and cafeteria for easy recognition to the children.

Using the same theme, a story-telling area has been incorporated in the media center.  Color-coded tiles in the hallways help small children easily find their classroom.  A mechanical mezzanine provides easy access for maintenance staff and reduces energy and labor costs.
