Our master plan for Herbert Hoover Elementary focused on providing comparable spaces to the district’s other elementary schools, which resulted in an initial phase investment including two additions and numerous renovations.
The additions include a new secure entry area and offices, as well as three new classrooms organized around a shared collaboration space. We converted the former office into a health room and other support spaces for staff and students, along with other renovations that improve the overall learning environment.
Bray also helped the school improve its site by adding additional parking, reconstructing the main entry drive, and adding a new soft-surface playground with ADA-compliant equipment.
