Fort Worth ISD Rosemont Elementary School
The new Rosemont Elementary School for Fort Worth ISD is located on a 6.7-acre site and is immediately adjacent to the existing Rosemont Middle School. The new school is a two-story building that includes academic core classrooms, special education classrooms, art, music, gymnasium, library / media center, administration office space and food service. The building was strategically placed to share public spaces, along with staff and visitor parking, with the existing Middle School to create a K-8 campus.
The planning of the building created public and private zones. Public areas such as the gymnasium and cafeteria were located near the front entrance of the school, while private spaces such as core classrooms were located in a separate wing. This public/private planning strategy also provided maximum flexibility for the school to safely secure the classroom wing and allow full access to mutli-use spaces for special events or community use without compromising security of the facility.
