The complex, surrounded on three sides by housing, is built on an irregular site, and consists of two separate buildings, a parking lot and a recreation area. One building houses the pre-school classrooms, offices, sleeping area, dining hall, and bathroom facilities. The second, larger building houses the primary school classrooms, workshops, offices, 500-seat auditorium, library, storage and service area. The two buildings are series of modules connected by one or two storey covered walkways. The classrooms receive north light. The larger, 3600 m2 primary school building is divided into two wings. The complex contains covered and open courtyards. The buildings are constructed of reinforced concrete on individual concrete footings laid on the desert sub rock. Infill is brick. Facades are plastered.
