Bessie Carmichael elementary school
As the only school located in the emerging residential community of South of Market in San Francisco, Bessie Carmichael Elementary School is designed to serve K-5 students, provide community meeting facilities, and includes a childcare program. The new construction is situated on 4 acres, with a shared use of an adjacent community park to augment recreational facilities and capitalize on additional funding opportunities. The Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH), along with the AIA California Council awarded Bessie Carmichael Elementary School with the Leroy F. Greene Design Award of Honor.
