On Friday, September 17, Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) broke ground on a new elementary school dubbed “Elementary School #32.” The new school is located at 5757 Inspiration Mountain Parkway in Phoenix and project completion is set for fall 2022.
Deer Valley Elementary School #32 will be a K-6 elementary school, with the infrastructure in place for future expansion to a K-8 campus. The project will include an administration building, multi-purpose building, and three classroom buildings. Site development will include shade structures, baseball and soccer fields, bus routing, and parking. The site is approximately 14 acres with 72,742 square feet of building footprint.
Monica Allread, director of communications and community engagement for DVUSD, shares two fun facts about Elementary 32: “The school will be officially named after a principal is hired in the coming months and it’s Deer Valley’s 41st school!”
The Elementary # 32 construction team includes SPS+ Architects LLP (architect) and McCarthy Building Companies (general contractor). When complete, the school will have capacity for 965 students, and be home to unique features like a media center and maker space. In total, it is a $21,235,000 investment.
How will the school’s boundaries be decided?
Boundary maps are posted on the new school’s website at dvusd.org/elementary32. Community members are invited to see the posted maps and provide feedback to a dedicated e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) through November 3. There is also a Board meeting on October 13 that is open to the public as well; visit the website for more details.
