Booker T. Washington Elementary School provides instructional space for 600 students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. A main spine houses administrative and large group spaces such as the gym and combination cafeteria/auditorium. Clerestory windows provide natural lighting along the circulation corridor and a window wall brightens the cafetorium. Classroom wings extend from the spine, with five classrooms per grade. Other program areas include science laboratories, a large media center with computer labs, and special needs classrooms. A long covered walkway leading to the main entrance provides shade for students coming from the vehicular drop-off area.

The school benefits from many site improvements such as a kickball/baseball field and separate playgrounds for the younger & older students.
