Project Description

The new Marina Vista Elementary School is located at the site of the old Marina Elementary School in downtown Pittsburg, between Eighth and Tenth Streets, and Railroad and Black Diamond Streets. The school is located on a cramped 4 acre site and is located within the Pittsburg redevelopment area. The school has been designed to accommodate 750 students in grades K-5.

Although the site is less than half the State Department of Education’s recommended site size, the design provides 3 acres of outdoor hardcourt and play fi elds which is more than adequate to provide for the physical education needs of the students.

The campus incorporates state of the art computer and educational media technology as well as the highest level of electronic security systems.

The campus is designed to allow and encourage public use of the Library/Media Center and the Multi-Purpose/Gymnasium. The school site is expected to be open for recreational uses after hours, and will be heavily used by the community. The underground parking garage will also provide additional parking for the City after school hours.
