Klein ISD's 4 New Schools


Recommended Posts

I think Klein ISD's 4 new schools are really nice. Krimmel Intermediate School which will be a redesign of the Schindewolf Intermediate floorplan will feature 177,000 sq.ft, which is 6,000 sq.ft smaller than Schindewolf. It also promotes grade level Housing which is when all 3 grade level's 4 main subject classes and administration is placed in one section of the building. Students will not have to leave their house unless they are going to an elective coures, Athletic wing, Library, or Cafeteria. The brick colors are a light pinkish and light reddish color with white stone as the trim. Key changes in the design that differ from the original Schindewolf plan is the location of the Cafeteria and Gymnasium(PE Dept.). The school sits on a big piece of land, therefore unlike Schindewolf its far back from the street. The location is at 7070 FM 2920, 1 mile west of Kuykendahl, 1 1/2 miles east of Stuebner Airline. Benignus Elementary is the nicest Elementary School that Klein ISD has built in my opinion. It is a beautiful school. It features a amphitheater in the library, flex room in each pod for small group instruction, outdoor learning space, attatched gymnasium to the main building, art and science labs, and a very modern, contemporary exterior. The same brick colors were used on Benignus that were used on Krimmel. Benignus is a 106,149 sq.ft facility, which is 2,201 sq.ft smaller than Metzler,Kreinhop, McDougle and Korhville Elementary Schools. The location is at the intersection of FM 2920 and Alvin A. Klein Rd. 1/4 mile west of Krimmel Intermediate. Vistas High School is a unique transformation from a former H-E-B Store to a School. It features 19 classrooms, 1 computer Lab, Library, Cafeteria and a 3 office administartion suite with a confrence room. Architects did a great job redesigning the front of the building so that it has a school friendly look with the flag pole entrance. The former Grocery Store contains a little over 30,000 sq.ft of space. It is located 1/4 mile east of Klein Forest High School at 12550 Bammel North Houston Rd. Frank Elementary School will be in the south part of the Gleannloch Farms Subdivision near Boudreaux Rd., 2 minutes from Korhville Elementary School. This school will also open in the 06-07 school year. The layout will be a replicate design of Benignus Elementary School with small changes such as brick colors and minor accessories. Thats my outlook on Klein ISD's 4 new schools. High School #5 will probaly be a redesign of Klein Collins High School. Who Knows? The Klein Indepentent School District is doinga great job choosing Architects. RWS Architects were used to redesign Vistas High School and Spencer Partnership Architects were used in the design phases of Benignus, Krimmel and Frank. :D
