Yerevan, Armenia LEED Silver
The Khoren and Shooshanig Avedisian School & Community Center provides a tuition-free education for economically disadvantaged children in the Malatia-
Sebastia District of Yerevan, Armenia for grades K–12. The school holds the distinguished honor of being the first LEED Certified building not only in Armenia, but

forth by the Armenian Ministry of Education.

The Khoren and Shooshanig Avedisian School & Community Center
Yerevan, Armenia LEED Silver
The students greatly benefit from the healthy and sustainable environment where they attend classes, and they use the building as an environmental laboratory.
They are taught to differentiate between litter and recyclables; to classify garbage into special bins for paper, plastic and litter; to save water; and to plant and care
for trees on the green roofs. With the school’s LEED certification and the Eco Project implemented at the school, students can learn about composting and how
important it is to take advantage of enriching the soil with the principle of “zero waste.”

Country Day School–Early Childhood Building
San Rafael, Cost Rica LEED Certified
The Country Day School in Costa Rica is a project that was developed with the goal of creating a healthy space for students to learn from their teachers and school.
The classroom buildings that successfully underwent LEED certification are the early learning center, middle school, high school and elementary school. The design
team was very careful when working on the design, keeping the goal in mind to create the best possible environment for students and teachers.

Country Day School–Middle School
San Rafael, Cost Rica LEED Certified
The orientation of the buildings was taken into consideration, to guarantee that they receive optimal natural light. Additionally, the buildings use natural ventilation
to reduce energy consumption and create a more natural environment. The project team selected regional materials as well as water- and energy-efficient products
and worked with electromechanical engineers to reduce overall energy consumption.

Country Day School–High School
San Rafael, Cost Rica LEED Silver
The landscape serves as a teaching tool, as well as a recreational and play area that only grows native plant species to reduce water consumption. All the trees that
were on site prior to construction were replanted and form a healthy part of the current landscape.

  • 8. Scuola Media E. Chini Mezzocorona, Italy LEED Gold The new middle school meets the needs of students from Mezzocorona (north of Italy) and multiple surrounding towns. The existing school was demolished to allow the construction of a new high-performance, sustainable school. All demolition debris was reused on-site. The high level of insulation in the new building envelope minimizes energy loss. Submitted by: Ing. Giorgia Lorenzi - Macro Design Studio Srl (USGBC Member at the Silver Level)
  • 9. Scuola Media E. Chini Mezzocorona, Italy LEED Gold The new structure is made of certified and regional wood. The design incorporates a lot of strategies to guarantee indoor environmental comfort, such as daylight and views of the outdoors, as well as encouraging alternative transportation. Submitted by: Ing. Giorgia Lorenzi - Macro Design Studio Srl (USGBC Member at the Silver Level)
  • 10. Mrachek Middle School Aurora, Colorado LEED Silver Mrachek Middle School celebrated the grand opening of its new building in fall 2018. The new school features a 130,000-square-foot building with separate learning communities for each grade level and serves up to 1,000 students. Mrachek was originally built in 1975 as an open classroom concept design without windows and interior walls to separate rooms. This design had been a challenge for the school community. Photo Credit: Aurora Public Schools Submitted by: Aurora Public Schools
  • 11. Mrachek Middle School Aurora, Colorado LEED Silver In addition to bond funds, APS received a grant toward the school’s construction from the Colorado Department of Education’s Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) Program. Mrachek’s new building aligns with our APS core belief that all students should have equitable access to learning environments that support them in reaching their full potential. Photo Credit: Aurora Public Schools Submitted by: Aurora Public Schools
  • 12. Palmer Hall, The Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind Colorado Springs, Colorado LEED Gold The historic Thomas Barber-designed Palmer Hall has undergone a full renovation that includes a new roof and windows to match those on the original structure (as closely as possible), fully renovated interiors, new high-performing mechanical systems, and new entries including an at-grade, accessible entry to the building’s west end and a public entrance on the north end. Photo Credit: RTA Architects and Moss Photography Architect: RTA Architects
  • 13. Palmer Hall, The Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind Colorado Springs, Colorado LEED Gold Palmer Hall now houses CSDB's Bridges to Life program which serves students between the ages of 18 and 21 who are deaf, or hard of hearing, and blind, or visually impaired. The program seeks to bridge the gap between high school and the real world by emphasizing the three key areas of education, employment and independence. The common kitchen includes a large semicircular demonstration island that can be used by students as a social gathering place, as well as for cooking instruction and demonstrations. Photo Credit: RTA Architects and Moss Photography Architect: RTA Architects
  • 14. Moffat PK–12 School Moffat, Colorado LEED Silver The Moffat PK–12 School in Saguache County, Colorado, features a diverse student population from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs, which is reflected in the regionally inspired materials and forms used in the design. The sloping roof prevents heavy snow and ice from building up. Also, large thermal curtains expand over the glazed walls to help retain stored heat during cold nights. Photo Credit: RTA Architects and David Lauer Photography Architect: RTA Architects
  • 15. Moffat PK–12 School Moffat, Colorado LEED Silver Classrooms are located on the north side of the building to reduce heat gain, provide optimum natural light and promote natural ventilation. Lower-level classrooms also have direct connections to the outdoors. The main entry stair has an elevated platform that serves as a social hub and has access to a “genius” bar/help desk. Photo Credit: RTA Architects and David Lauer Photography Architect: RTA Architects
  • 16. Glenarden Woods Elementary School Glenarden, Maryland LEED Gold Glenarden Woods Elementary School delivers a Talented and Gifted (TAG) program for grades 2 through 5. Certified LEED Gold, this extensive addition and renovation focuses on sustainability design and education by featuring 21st century learning spaces, such as STEAM and symposium labs. Through a dashboard feature, submetering data conveys key performance information for students and visitors entering the school. Energy conservation strategies and education have saved 22% more energy than simply meeting code, which equates to more than $10,000 a year in energy savings. Photo Credit: Sisson Studios Architect: Moseley Architects (USGBC Member at the Silver Level)
  • 17. Glenarden Woods Elementary School Glenarden, Maryland LEED Gold The Symposium Lab addition, much like a black box theater and a STEAM lab, was the result of Moseley Architects’ collaboration with Prince George’s County Public Schools to meet new programming needs and develop a flexible classroom for accommodating various size groups and presentation formats. However, this addition eliminated a courtyard that provided natural light to the adjacent classrooms. Through the use of Solatubes and clerestories, 92 percent of the core learning spaces are now daylit, which is more than 35,000-square-feet. Photo Credit: Sisson Studios Architect: Moseley Architects (USGBC Member at the Silver Level)
  • 18. Youth’s Benefit Elementary School Fallston, Maryland LEED Silver The new Youth’s Benefit Elementary School was a phased/site-occupied project, constructed on an existing site with a 1950s primary building, a 1960s kindergarten annex building and a 1970s open spaced intermediate building. A large courtyard amphitheater is accessible from both the lower and upper floors for outdoor learning and large group instruction. It was a challenge to achieve LEED Silver for this replacement school because of numerous aspects, from identifying green priorities that both aligned with Harford County Public School goals and were also economically feasible to dealing with site constraints of maintaining existing buildings during construction of the new building.
