Kiser PK-8 School garners national design accolades
One of Dayton Public Schools first new school buildings has earned praise from beyond the Miami Valley for its stylish, state-of-the-art design.
Kiser PK-8 School was recently honored by School Planning & Management magazine in its ninth annual Education Design Showcase competition. The school, which opened in August 2006, was recognized as a “project of distinction” for outstanding architecture and design. Kiser was one of only seven schools across the United States and Canada chosen for this honor.
“Each project may be unique, yet they all share one common goal: To provide the best possible learning environment for all students at all levels of education. … Kiser PK-8 School has achieved this goal,” the award letter stated.
Levin Porter Associates, the Dayton-based architectural firm that designed Kiser PK-8, submitted the school for consideration in the contest.
“We felt it was important to enter Kiser PK-8 School in the competition because it represents the culmination of the efforts by the district, state, board of education and the Dayton community over many years, and demonstrates the commitment of Dayton’s citizens and leaders to the importance of education in the lives of our children and in the future of our community,” Levin Porter President Tom Thickel said.
