Hilltop's Additional Classroom Building Under Construction

Hilltop's Additional Classroom Building Under Construction

Building Creates More Classroom Capacity

Contractors swung sections of building into place in October at Hilltop Elementary School. By early 2021, Hilltop will have an additional four new classrooms with a set of bathrooms in its new additional classroom building at the northwest corner of the school site. 

When the project is completed and school buildings reopen to more students, Principal John Erickson plans to use the new space for early learners in the pre-kindergarten program. This will create more space for students in early grades inside the main building.

Already Planned

When voters approved the 2016 school bond, our Capital Construction department secured grant funds for additional classroom buildings. Two additional classroom buildings opened at North Hill Elementary and White Center Heights Elementary schools in 2019. The third building is being installed at Hilltop Elementary School this year, as planned. 

The new building will include bathroom facilities and an entrance foyer with two entrances. 

Check out photos of the new classroom buildings at North Hill and White Center Heights elementary schools and find out more about the state grant. Below are photos of the project in progress at Hilltop.
