SANTA ROSA -- The new Roseland Creek Elementary School opened its doors for the first time on Aug. 20 to welcome 400 students for the fall semester.
This school, located at 1683 Burbank Ave., serves students from kindergarten through sixth grade on a campus built in southwest Santa Rosa in a culturally diverse neighborhood.
Situated within a meadow along an oak-lined creek running along its southern border, the school is the first to be built in the Roseland School District in nearly 50 years.

Designed to meet the needs of a growing local population, this 62,000 square foot campus provides a learning environment for up to 750 students.
Built at a cost of $17.5 million, the campus is comprised of three buildings placed around open space on the site that creates an interior courtyard.
There are two, two-story classroom buildings that contain five kindergarten classrooms along with three special education classrooms, 26 elementary classrooms, a computer classroom, library and the school administrative office.
The third structure is a multi-purpose building used as an assembly area, gymnasium and lunchroom.
With a design that integrates natural light, high efficiency lighting and advanced HVAC systems, the school’s energy performance exceeds California’s Title 24 energy saving requirements by 28 percent, according to Ian Grossman, project architect with TLCD Architecture.
As a result of these savings, the district should receive a $50,000 rebate by participating in PG&E’s Savings by Design Program.
With emphasis on humanizing the scale of the building to make it more child friendly, the multi-use and two-story classroom buildings are organized into groups of four classrooms. Large exterior wallspace includes a colorful composition of glass, stucco and siding.
“As students enter their new school, sunlight dances through the tall, colored glass entry vestibules as well as through the glazed, two-story pedestrian bridge that links the classroom buildings and embraces the natural surroundings of the neighborhood,” said John Dybczak, K-12 practice leader for TLCD Architecture.
