At the heart of the school sits a giant redbud tree with branches connecting to all three wings. The concept for the school was inspired by biophilic design that simulates elements from nature and connects the students to the natural world. The new Redbud Elementary School is filled with sensory experiences in a fun, colorful and exciting learning environment for the Round Rock Community. The school incorporates six learning communities, each with their own teacher planning rooms, small group rooms and collaboration areas.
The new two-story elementary school holds a capacity of 900 people providing the students and Round Rock community with a state of the art 21st century environment. Learning Neighborhoods house studios for all grade levels along with collaboration areas, small group rooms, a Professional Learning Center, makerspace, as well as classrooms for visual arts and music, a gymnasium, dining commons, and a community room. Administrative offices are located on the first floor adjacent to the media center.
Redbud Elementary School is the first school in the State of Texas with features specifically designed to respond to the challenges COVID-19 presents to a school environment.
