Bonnie Oehl Elementary School Modernization

Highland, California




San Bernardino City Unified School District

Total Cost


Completion Date


Working at one of only a few dual-immersion elementary schools in the San Bernardino City Unified School District, Bonnie Oehl staff recognized the challenges of learning in two languages. They wanted to give students space to learn and converse outside the classroom. The library was reimagined and transformed into a space for collaboration and conversations among students, and now includes a more flexible and expandable space, featuring operable glass walls and a new adjacent maker space. Two non-accessible sinks and drinking fountains were relocated and reworked to provide students with quality facilities.
