Originally built in 1925, the historic Manzanola K‑12 structure is among architect Temple Buell’s first buildings and located in Manzanola, a small rural southeastern town in Colorado.

The Manzanola Elementary School and Jr./Sr. High School replacement school projects received a BEST grant to help modernize and update aging school facilities to a 21st learning environment. An extended two-story media center, additional learning courtyard, and vocational agriculture classroom and shop provide innovative learning opportunities that help expand job options for students.

This complex, multi-phase project built a new 44,500-square-foot addition housing the Elementary School and is designed to closely match the historic structure. A 4,000-square-foot bus barn and renovation of the existing 19,000-square-foot Jr./Sr. High School facility were also included. Following this phase, the elementary school was abated and demolished.

  • Complex addition and renovation for historical structure
  • Multi-phase project to allow for phased use of existing and new buildings
  • BEST Grant funded project with extensive local labor and trade partner outreach and involvement
