Neidig Elementary School, Quakertown Community School District
Originally built in 1958, Quakertown Community School District’s Neidig Elementary School was in need of renovations as well as an expansion for the school district’s increasing enrollment numbers. The school reopened this fall with a two-story classroom wing expansion, a fully renovated classroom wing and a gymnasium addition. The facility has a brand-new look and can now accommodate 600 students.
The two-story classroom wing expansion features a centralized large group instruction area on each floor to encourage interactive and collaborative learning for the intermediate grade levels. The variety of spaces offer opportunities for student research, development and presentation as part of the next generation of learning. Areas are provided for small group instruction and a learning stair at the main entrance lobby adjacent to the expanded administration area increases building circulation.
New cabinetry, finishes and toilet room renovations serve the primary grade levels in the newly renovated existing classroom wing. Building updates in the specials wing of the building includes complete interior renovations to the library, art and music classrooms, and the addition of a gymnasium with a stage for physical education and school performances.
Other renovations include new HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems, updated technology, a new kitchen, and a new roof and windows. Site improvements include improved circulation to separate the parent and bus loops, expanded parking and new play areas.
