Adams Elementary School

Located in a rapidly-developing residential and commercial area of southwest Lincoln, Adams Elementary School provides 95,000 SF of exceptional learning space for students from Kindergarten through fifth grade and early childhood special education programs. Located on 22 acres adjacent a residential development and public park, the Adams Elementary site includes recreational fields, play grounds, staff and visitor parking, and student drop off lanes.

Lincoln Public Schools challenged the design team of Sinclair Hille Architects to creatively design a new elementary school that would provide a stimulating learning environment for students and much needed community space for after-hours meetings and club athletics. Designed for a student capacity of 800, the arrangement of public and private spaces were thoughtfully organized to increase the level of security in the building through physical separation of program uses. 


I appreciate the ability of the Sinclair Hille Team to listen when designing a project for our campus. They have a great design process to engage faculty and staff to explore ideas, dream and then share their recommendations.
