Fairview Elementary School Celebrates Reopening After Modernization

Friday March 8, 2024

Dozens of community members came out to celebrate the reopening of Fairview Elementary School today after a year-long modernization project was completed last fall. The ambitious project, a collaboration between the Greenfield Union School District and Ordiz-Melby Architects, was the first significant renovation since the school’s integration into the Greenfield Union School District in 1952.

The entire campus was emptied, and the buildings were reconstructed from the studs up. The result is a modern and cutting-edge educational environment that seamlessly blends the institution’s rich history with the demands of the 21st century, said Greenfield Superintendent Ramon Hendrix.

Fairview Elementary now boasts smaller class sizes, a vital renovation feature to provide students with a more personalized and engaging learning experience. The campus has been equipped with updated technology, ensuring students can access the latest tools to enhance their education.

Security measures have also been significantly enhanced, aligning with the district’s unwavering commitment to creating a safe and secure learning environment for all students.

The Greenfield Union School District serves an average of 9,000 students annually and is made up of nine elementary schools, three middle schools, and one community school.
