Kentucky’s Next Net Zero Energy School

Jennings Creek Elementary follows the energy reducing design strategies implemented throughout the district including a site-produced alternative renewable energy source (solar) to achieve zero energy status.

Located within a campus shared with the existing Henry Moss Middle School, Jennings Creek Elementary encourages Integrated Learning, between the two facilities and promote a P-8 campus. While the buildings are separate, an outdoor pathway and supervised corridor, enable staff and students to utilize the Cafetorium with a stage, Group Study Areas, and the Monumental Collaboration Stair.

Housed within the Media Center are “Maker Spaces” to encourage student group meetings and promote collaborative thinking. At the Center of the Media Center is a Media Hub, allowing students to utilize computer work stations within the supervised environment.

Each classroom features flexible seating options, such as wobble chairs, balls, and couches to allow students to burn off energy in a way that’s not disruptive yet promote classroom learning, with the easily moveable furniture.
