Elementary School #9 will be a new school located on the property on Harbor Hill Drive across from the YMCA. The district purchased this parcel of land in 2013 in anticipation of the increased number of students residing in the growing Gig Harbor North area. Design and permitting for a 71,000 square foot facility is underway to provide a 30 classroom school set to open in the fall of 2021. Naming of the school will be coming soon.
It’s so exciting to see the school site transforming. For our Gig Harbor North families, the school location will offer a central hub for learning within walking distance for most of our students. Recent local growth has pushed our elementary schools over capacity. We are so grateful to our PSD community for passing last year’s capital bond that made this local community school a reality for students in our district.
