Harvard Elementary School Logo

Harvard Elementary, built in 1955, will be rebuilt to address the need for expansion and improved conditions.

Location: 1709 85th St E, Tacoma, Washington 98445

Harvard Elementary School will undergo a replacement of the original building and feature a fully modernized school with an upgraded security system. The new Harvard 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.
