Chesterfield County Public Schools identified the need to replace three elementary schools, as well as add an additional elementary school. Wanting these schools completed on an aggressive timeline, they opted to utilize a prototype design. Beulah Elementary School, one of the replacement schools, is built on a 25-acre site about a mile from the existing Beulah Elementary School. The one-story school is designed to hold 900 students.
The design includes three classroom wings that will each contain two grade levels. The cafeteria and gymnasium, which are side by side, have an operable wall between them to allow for the two spaces to be used together for large assemblies.
