Bell Elementary - Tyler, Texas
The campus site development design for Bell Elementary School (Tyler Independent School District) provides a pleasant environment for students and faculty. The courtyard development theme centered around the use of hardscape materials to place math and punctuation symbols before the students, even in an outdoor setting. The different symbols of math and punctuation were laid with brick pavers in the main walk that curved from one end of the courtyard to the other.
Other areas of the landscaped courtyard provide locations for students, parents and teachers to have a quiet outdoor space to meet and discuss the student's progress. Also, within the courtyard is an outdoor class room used by teachers when the weather permits. An outdoor lunch area is available for classes or parents to use during good weather.
