Newmarket Elementary School

After 10 years and many different proposals to renovate the Newmarket Schools, the district hired Banwell Architects in 2017 to address much needed improve­ments. Vetting the many options with the building committee and community helped to zero in on the district’s needs. The bond vote passed for both the Elementary school and the Jr/Sr High on the first try with Banwell. The Elementary school design accommodated the school’s population of 540 students with an expanded core capacity of 650.

Features of the project include:

  • New classroom wing addition composed of Pre-K, Kindergarten, 5th grade, and small group rooms. The addition enables the school to eliminate tempo­rary modular classrooms on site.
  • Additional renovation space allowed for right sizing special education, nurse’s office and other support spaces to meet department of education require­ments.
  • A new gym addition and expanded/renovated kitchen at rear of building.
  • Expanded cafeteria.
  • Renovated administration suite with secured entry.
  • Expanded parking and separation of bus and car drop off.
  • Infrastructure upgrades building wide.
