Facility replaces school that was built with open-classroom concept

The Shawnee Mission (Kan.) School District has opened a new Comanche Elementary School in Overland Park. The new 550-student facility has been built on the same site as the old school. Students and teachers moved into the school last week, but the main entrance to the new building will not be completed until the old school is torn down in the spring. In the new school, the classrooms have walls, unlike the old facility, which was built when the open-classroom concept was in vogue. The architect is Gould Evans Goodman Architects.
