Desiring a new two-story elementary school for future replacement campuses, Cy-Fair ISD tasked VLK to design Pope elementary to embrace the districts “open plan” concept and provide a modern learning environment that facilitates the districts education pedagogy. Pope features a transformative next generation environment that is adaptable to the instruction needs of the campus through collaboration spaces nestled within classrooms that can be modified through the use of operable walls.
"In addition to its inviting appeal, the state-of-the-art design of Pope Elementary School accommodates the modern learning environment that Cypress-Fairbanks ISD offers. The school’s classrooms, library, reading nooks, multi-purpose observation deck and many flexible learning spaces were all designed with an intentional focus on hands-on education that will allow our 21st-century learners to thrive.”Dr. Mark Henry Superintendent, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD
