Rex Fortune Elementary School
Center Joint Unified School District
Rex Fortune is the first elementary school within the Center Joint Unified School District, educating transitional kindergarten through sixth-grade students (TK-6). The new school, named after the late superintendent of the school district, Dr. Rex Fortune opened in the Fall of 2023. Rex Fortune Elementary is focused on teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM).
Two of the six classroom buildings are designed specifically for STEAM education which opens the inside to the outside through large rolling doors to accommodate robotics and other lab functions. Two buildings are designed to accommodate traditional classrooms, and two are designed for kindergarten students with an exclusive secured interior play area.
Modular construction was utilized in this project to achieve high standards of design, schedule, and budget.
