Margaret Chase Smith Elementary School

Additions and Renovations

Sanford, Maine

As part of a district-wide restructuring, the Margaret Chase Smith Elementary School is being renovated and expanded to accommodate approximately 520 Pre-K-4th Grade students. Originally utilized as a smaller elementary school, the renovations and expansions are a result of a number of school closings and consolidations aimed at providing equity across the district while reducing the educational and vehicular transfers and overall operations and maintenance costs.

A 57,000-s.f., two-story addition to the back of the existing school allows for dedicate PreK and Kindergarten wings, as well as a full cooking kitchen and cafeteria, gymnasium, as well as art and music classrooms. The renovation also provides for fully ADA-compliant restrooms and a secure entry. Construction is underway.
