FOREST PINES DRIVE & NORTH FOREST PINES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CAMPUS
This new elementary school campus accommodates 2 schools, adapting an existing prototype design and each providing space for 655 students. North Forest Pines Elementary school is a year round school while Forest Pines Drive Elementary school operates on a traditional calendar. Features include increased core, play room, and classroom spaces based on revised educational specifications provided by the Wake County Public School System.
With a steep 8% grade and high amount of development, the site required interventions such as partial retaining walls and underground stormwater management. Site amenities include fenced play areas for primary students, 2 playgrounds, a paved play area, and an open play field.
