Queen Creek gets two new schools
- posted in: Uncategorized
For families in Phoenix’s East Valley, back to school won’t be just about returning – it will include exploring entirely new campuses.
Logan Simpson is proud to have been a part of the Silver Valley school project! Our team provided hardscape, landscape, irrigation and site design. The site design including all site planning- fields, courts, walks, fire lane location, parking lot layout, and fencing.
Silver Valley Elementary will have nearly 600 pre-K through sixth-grade students for its first year. School officials say it’ll be STEAM focused. It’s decked out with high-tech technology like smart panels which give teachers the ability to write and save their work on a big monitor. It also has breakout areas in the hallways with special paint that transforms the walls into a dry erase surface. Students can write on the walls with a dry erase marker, and it’ll come off.
Lamb said it cost a total of $70 million to build both schools and that a voter-approved bond paid for half of it and the other half came from the state.
