This project involved the construction of a new elementary school that serves Pre-K through 5th grade, with 20 general classrooms and 8 specialty teaching spaces.  The school was designed to be science-focused, offering students a collaborative space for hands-on learning.

Riley completed this work as part of a $128 million referendum that included simultaneous work on 3 schools within the district — the other two being  Knapp Elementary and Gifford Elementary. All work was completed on time and within budget.
