The new Crum PK-8 School replaces two existing facilities that have been in disrepair and lacking spaces and technology delivery systems required for 21st century learning skills.

The total enrollment for the school is 356 students. The new grade configuration separated the elementary students from the middle school students, but still allows use of the common spaces within the building. They share the dining room, gymnasium, media center, and stage.

The main entrance is accentuated with large steel trusses that form a vaulted wood ceiling that continues through the main corridor. Highlighting the façade is black brick with a glazed yellow brick accent and a stone wall memorializing the historic stone façade from the existing school.

The new school is more energy efficient than the previous facility. It also is easily maintained with its polished concrete floors throughout the school. The gymnasium is located for ease of public access but can be divided for simultaneous use by elementary and middle school classes.

The academic areas have easy access to the state-of-the art media center. Each classroom has several student computer locations and a teacher location. In addition to the typical classrooms, there are science classrooms and labs, teacher planning areas, and separate administrative areas for elementary and middle school. The new facility is home to a new vocational agriculture classroom/lab with an attached greenhouse.
