About Grace B. Luhrs University Elementary School:
The Grace B. Luhrs University Elementary School (GBLUES) is the continuing expression of Shippensburg University's commitment to quality teacher preparation. Since 1871, Shippensburg University has provided its students and its surrounding community with a model school. Thanks to the cooperative agreement between Shippensburg University and the Shippensburg Area School District, Shippensburg University is the last university in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education to offer a public campus school.
The Luhrs School is the first certified green school building in Pennsylvania. In its construction and daily operation, the building is designed to be an energy efficient, low-environmental-impact building. It provides school districts in Pennsylvania with a model of an inviting, healthy, pleasant physical environment, constructed at a reasonable cost.
The Luhrs Library Media Center is home to the university's 11,000 volume children's literature collection. In addition to books and other instructional media, the center provides university and elementary students with wireless computer access, faculty support and a pleasant place to work and learn.
