Collins Elementary will be rebuilt and relocated to address the need for expansion and improved infrastructure.

Location: 4608 128th Street E, Tacoma, Washington 98446

Collins Elementary school, built in 1935, will undergo a replacement of the original building and feature a fully modernized school with an upgraded security system. The new Collins will be constructed by a prototype design, meaning that it will be based around the same size and layout of the other replacement schools, but will keep its individuality. The new building will be an estimated 50,000* square feet and will be built to accommodate approximately ~500 students in grades K-5.
