Desert Hills Elementary School

Desert Hills Elementary School was designed by Studio D to accommodate a rapidly growing population in the Northeast Area of Las Cruces.   As with public school facilities in such areas, this school was designed and positioned on its site to allow for future expansion in all directions.  Originally 30 classrooms, Studio D Architects designed a two-classroom addition in 1998 and a kindergarten classroom addition in 2004, and recently completed an upgrade renovation to meet the latest NM PSFA adequacy requirements.  The multi-purpose room and multi-media area are available for after-hours community use through controlled access points.  Separate bus drop-off, student drop-off, and teacher/visitor parking areas provide a safe environment for both children and adults.  The wings of the building form an arc to define a central courtyard area for outdoor activities.
