FORT WORTH ISD
Westpark Elementary School
Westpark Elementary School replaces an aging facility and provides students with a modern space that is light and bright, featuring large classrooms, an outdoor learning courtyard and an engaging library. A large commons features floor-to-ceiling windows on each side and tube pendants on the ceiling, filling the space with light and setting the tone for a modern learning environment. A cluster of public spaces adjoin the commons, including a cafeteria, gymnatorium and a large library. The library is anchored by an expansive window bench, increasing usable space and adding a hint of fun for students. The 2-story academic wing serves students in Pre-K through 5th grade; the campus combines traditional and project-based learning.
