The original building, first occupied in January 1962, consisted of 20 classrooms, a library, a kitchen and a cafeteria. In 1971, a gymnasium was completed, and in 1987, a kindergarten wing was added to the school plant. In 1994, a new library was added to the school offering a computerized checkout system and networked computers. In the fall of 2010 renovations and additions were completed including an administrative wing, front entrance, art and music rooms; cafeteria and kitchen; and a state of the art geothermal heating and air conditioning system throughout the school. All existing classrooms received new flooring, counter tops and storage added. Each classroom is equipped with an ActivPanel and additional ancillary technology devices. Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, elementary students will each have access to a laptop at school.
