New Elementary School In Banning Lewis Ranch
This new neighborhood elementary will add to District 49’s portfolio of schools through integration of the visual and performing arts with traditional academic standards to develop the passion and talents of all students. Scheduled to open in August of 2019, the school will serve the Banning Lewis Ranch area and surrounding neighborhoods.

The new school is visible from Vista Del Pico Boulevard in the Banning Lewis Ranch neighborhood in northeast Colorado Springs. On Friday, September 14, our partners at Nunn Construction hosted a "Topping Out" ceremony during which construction crews installed the topmost steel beam for the new school, which was signed by future students and D49 staff. We've posted the Topping Out ceremony on Facebook. Click here
