The Clarksburg Cluster Elementary School #9, later named Cabin Branch Elementary School, was designed utilizing the MCPS elementary school prototype building design that was successfully implemented at Great Seneca Creek, William B. Gibbs, Jr., Little Bennett, Wilson Wims, and Snowden Farm elementary schools with modifications necessary to adapt to the site conditions. Following the guidelines provided in MCPS Regulation FAA-RA, Educational Facilities Planning, the proposed new facility was designed for a capacity of 721 students.
The building design encourages a flexible approach to accommodating the educational program and maximum connectivity to the surrounding physical environment. Each instructional area has adequate learning spaces, work areas, restrooms, and storage facilities. In anticipation of future growth, the location of a 6-classroom addition has been master-planned for a capacity of 732 students.
