Eli Terry Elementary School
A new K-5 elementary school was built on the existing Eli Terry campus as part of Phase Two of the Town of South Windsor’s Ten-Year Elementary Facilities Master Plan. Construction extended from Spring 2019 to the Summer of 2020, during which time students remained in the original Eli Terry building. With a maximum enrollment of 437, Eli Terry hosts the town’s special education programs which was crucial to the design of the building. While keeping the original school’s traditional aesthetics, the design is enhanced by introducing modern elements. Pops of bright primary colors were used to contrast calming natural wood tones throughout the building to create a soothing yet playful environments for the students. Original school signage was salvaged and relocated to become a focal point in the new main lobby. In the Fall of 2020, the original building was demolished to allow for construction of playgrounds and replacement ball fields.
