Located in a very traditional, yet transitional neighborhood just a few miles from downtown Houston, the original Valley Oaks Elementary was demolished and the site cleared for this replacement campus. The new Valley Oaks Elementary School is a contemporary, two-story building designed for students Pre-K through 5th grade.

The superstructure for this building is a multi-story steel frame with conventional beams, columns, and bar joists. The first-floor slab is slab-on-grade with a conventional grade beam and belled pier foundation. The 2nd floor and roof are non-composite steel beams and bar joists with metal deck. The lateral system is a series of concentric steel braced frames strategically placed within the building
