The modernization and new construction of the Greer Elementary School campus rotated the school 90 degrees and features three new classroom buildings, an administration building, and multi-purpose room twice the size of the current one. Two existing buildings containing 12 classrooms were remodeled to match the new construction. The innovative design, known as Project JOE (Jump on Education), is focused on 21st century learning promoting a flexible and collaborative environment for students and staff. The school remained occupied throughout construction, requiring the project to be broken up into phases and the students to be housed in temporary classrooms that remained on site for the duration of the project. As buildings were completed, students were moved into the newly constructed classrooms and students from existing classrooms were moved to the temporary classrooms, and so forth until construction was complete.
