BEAVERTON, OR — School district officials will join Mayor Denny Doyle and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici Friday to dedicate the newly rebuilt Vose Elementary School in east Beaverton. Vose Elementary is one of four schools to be demolished and rebuilt thanks to a $680 million bond approved by voters in May 2014. Three all-new schools will also be constructed as part of the bond.

The dedication ceremony will take place at Vose Elementary, 11350 S.W. Denney Rd., beginning at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 6.

Vose Elementary opened in September, at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year, according to Beaverton School District (BSD) spokeswoman Maureen Wheeler. During construction, students and staff spent the 2016-2017 school year at a temporary location in the Timberland neighborhood.

Previously noted for its Two-Way Language Immersion program, Vose was rebuilt specifically as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) school. Sato, Hazeldale, and William Walker elementary schools will also be built with the same prototype design, Wheeler said.

Measured at 87,200-square-feet, Vose can now serve up to 750 students across 32 classrooms. The new school also includes a stage, dividable gym, and nine additional teaching areas, including a specific teacher area in the library, Wheeler said. An open house, which will include tours, is scheduled for Oct. 26 beginning at 6 p.m.

The $185 million Mountainside High School, located at 12500 S.W. 175th Ave., celebrated its grand opening ceremony Sept. 23 — the same morning as the groundbreaking ceremony for Hazeldale Elementary.
