R.J. Neutra Elementary School
The school was built in 1960, from an earlier 1929 International style architectural design created by modernist architect Richard Neutra. It is a large single round 'donut' structure radiating around a spacious open courtyard. The school's website describes it with: "Here one finds a "Civilian Island" of eleven acres in the midst of a military complex."
The R. J. Neutra Elementary School, grades K-5th, is within the Central Union School District.
School administrators created and buried a time capsule in 1993, to be opened '20 Years Later' in 2013.
R. J. Neutra offers programs such as: 'Gifted and Talented' and 'Mileage Club' and other scholastic groups, and basketball, volleyball, track and field, and other sports teams.
Neutra Elementary School has currently won 3 California Distinguished Schools Awards and 2 National Blue Ribbon Schools Awards.
