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. 

August 7, 2019:  The Slichter|Ugrin designed project is in progress. ESI reports the elevator tower is complete and masonry walls at the gymnasium are being topped out. Footing forms are currently being set and concrete slab on grade is being placed in various areas of the new building. Underslab mechanical/electrical/plumbing rough-ins are in progress. Erection of structural steel is beginning. Completion of the new school building is scheduled for prior to the start of the 2020-2021 School Year.
