Pine Shadows Elementary opened in 1955. The new school was rebuilt under the 2007 SBISD Bond plan. It reopened in August 2012 as a two-story, 109,000 square feet, building with tall glass-curtain walls and a building plan that includes four areas identified by colors and “habitats” – an ocean, a rain forest, a mountain and blue sky. New classroom and support spaces are all identified by animals that inhabit a specific habitat.
