Starr King Elementary School
Starr King Elementary School is the pilot program for the 2011 Bond which builds on the SFUSD 2006 Bond programs successes and aspirations. This project, called GreenSchoolyard 2.0, had the visionary goal of including stormwater management, rainwater harvesting, place-based plant and tree selection, and an environment for enriching play and learning. Bay Tree Design working collaboratively with 450 Architects has created the first public school in San Francisco to comply with SFPUC’s stormwater regulations, harvest rainwater for indoor plumbing uses, have more challenging play equipment, and designated nature play areas.
