Janis Guerrero Thompson Elementary School

This 98,485 square-foot elementary school houses 32 classrooms, a computer lab, three special education classrooms, a multi-purpose classroom, an art lab, and a music lab, as well as a 10,200-square-foot alternate wing.

Guererro Thompson Elementary School has received green certification from both the U.S. Green Building Council (LEED Silver), and Austin Energy Green Building (4-star). During construction, nearly 95 percent of the waste created was recycled or repurposed, keeping nearly 1,000 tons of trash out of the landfill. The school’s green design is estimated to save 20 percent in annual energy costs compared to a conventionally designed school.
