The new Vose Elementary School opened its doors in September 2017. Vose students and staff spent the 2016-2017 school year in a temporary school in the Timberland area, while their school was demolished and rebuilt.
Vose was designed as a prototype school by DLR Group Architects. Sato, Hazeldale and William Walker Elementaries have the same design, part of a cost-saving measure by the District.
Vose has capacity for 750 students. The 87,200-square foot school includes 32 classrooms, nine additional teaching spaces, a stage, teaching area in the library and a dividable gym. The school was built by Triplett Wellman.
Visitors to the school may wonder what happened to the two giant sequoia trees that stood in front of the old building. Those trees were cut down to align the school's new main entrance drive to King Boulevard. The wood from the trees was repurposed and used for several artistic and functional items in the new school.
