Pierce Park Elementary - Update

Pierce Park Elementary School was constructed in 1938 and is overcrowded and has outlived its practical lifespan. With multiple portable classrooms and a small combined gymnasium, Pierce Park ranked as the fourth worst elementary school for Educational Adequacy in the 2016 Facilities Audit and the third worst elementary school for Utilization.  

A new school is a critical need for the neighborhood and will addresses not only overcrowding and safety as well as meet modern education standards while honoring the rich history of the school. 

May 6, 2020:  ESI is completing construction of the new school designed by Slichter|Ugrin Architects. Final finishes are nearing completion. District provided furnishings and equipment are being installed. Salvage efforts and abatement of hazardous materials at the old school have begun.
