Natomas Charter School
Shaping education through sustainable design
The Natomas Charter Star Academy is a new K-5, 44,400 sq. ft. campus within Natomas Unified School District. It started as a master planning exercise to develop proper vehicular and pedestrian access points as well as proper east-west axis daylighting strategies. The new campus includes regular and transitional kindergarten classrooms, standard classrooms, a multi-purpose room, administration offices, a library, media centers, and hard court play areas and a playing field. The design of this campus incorporated concepts in modularity for cost, energy efficiency, and sustainability.
