About Saddlebrook Elementary

  • Saddlebrook Joint Facility opened its doors in the fall of 2009 as a collaboration with the city of Omaha Recreation Department and Omaha Public Library. It is unlike any school in the State of Nebraska and one of only a few in the United States.  Its unique arrangement of elementary school, community center and public library under a single roof benefits all students, their families and our community members while incorporating life long learning and wellness for life.

    The facility features a commons area, the circulatory center of the building, which functions as a welcoming place for meeting, gatherings, and grade level assemblies.  Saddlebrook students reap the benefits of two gyms, a mac and pc lab, an indoor running track, a "green" roof, and a state of the art technology classrooms.

    The building is a model of cooperation.  Three groups with similar, yet supporting goals, come together to create an example for the rest of the United States.
