Smoot Construction has completed construction of the newest Columbus City School, Ecole Kenwood, which is a French-Immersion school. The 66,000 square-foot school, which was designed and constructed with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind, also has an amphitheater, state-of-the-art audio-visual and security systems, Wi-Fi throughout, a gymnasium, and indoor and outdoor dining spaces.
The new Ecole Kenwood Elementary School is a replacement building located on the same urban site as the previous school. The project met the challenges of the constricted site while supporting the school’s Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade French language immersion program. High-tech classrooms and flexible collaboration spaces will allow students to explore language through a variety of learning styles.
“It’s (the new facility) only going to enhance the great things that we’ve already begun and allow us to expand our 21st-century learning,” said Emma Corbin, now in her second year as principal at the school.
