Cascadia Elementary School
Cascadia Elementary is a new, 55,000 square foot school for the Ferndale School District in north Whatcom County, Washington built by Summit Construction. The school was designed to complement the natural beauty of its surroundings.
Cascadia is nestled into a hillside on the steeply sloped site to keep with the scale and preserve the views of neighboring residences. The building is designed and oriented so each classroom is filled with natural light from windows on two exterior walls and was awarded a National School Boards Association Jury Citation in 2009.
