The Great Neck Elementary School building was replaced by a new environmentally friendly and energy-saving 71,100 SF building. The new building is heated and cooled by a geothermal system. In addition, every two classrooms share a break-out room, which is a small group work space which also houses the classroom computers. Each classroom has a Promethean Board, an interactive white board that will open up a world of teaching and learning possibilities for our students.
The new building includes a gymnasium, separated from the cafeteria by a multi-purpose stage/band classroom. Safety is also enhanced in the school through a high-tech security system.
