Canyon Ranch Elementary adds to the what’s been a common occurrence over the past several years of growth, development, and change at Coppell ISD. This latest addition capacity is 700 students and is the district’s 11th elementary school. The project was approved by voters during the 2016 bond election.
The school is designed where certain rooms correlated with certain moods and emotions. The library is painted in a blue tone in order to elicit moods of relaxation while the houses and learning areas are painted with warm colors such as orange and yellow to stimulate brain activity. Brain research was conducted in deciding what colors to put where.
