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.
