Rebuilding a School, Revitalizing a Community.

Web Abstract: 
Discusses the process for rebuilding Capitol Elementary School, located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Phoenix, Arizona. Responsibility for planning the new school fell to a committee of parents, staff, community members, and businesspeople. As much as the new school was designed to support the staff's educational goals, it also serves another, vitally important purpose: It fosters a sense of community among the diverse group of people who live, work, learn, and play in and around Capitol School.
