DISD Geneva Heights Elementary School
Geneva Heights Elementary School was originally constructed in 1931 in the Art Deco style. Over the last 60 years, the original building saw several additions and renovations.
Dallas ISD is currently working with BRW to build a replacement elementary school on the same property and retain the primary portion of the existing 1930’s construction. The new construction will remain sensitive to the historic nature of the original structure, while also providing a complimentary modern counterpoint.
Dallas ISD hosted a series of design charettes to review the design process, discuss ideas, and create a vision for the replacement of Geneva Heights Elementary School. The input received from the community design charettes revealed the importance of retaining the primary structure of the 1930’s building. The sessions also highlighted the need to adapt to growth while maintaining the small knit community.
The new Geneva Heights Elementary School is scheduled to be completed by summer 2024 and will house 750 students from PK – 5 grade. The new building will feature outdoor gardens and playgrounds and a second-floor porch designed for experiential learning. The school is designed to be appropriately scaled to fit the character of the community while remaining an accessible and welcoming campus for students.
