Quakertown Community School District’s Neidig Elementary School has been Transformed
Quakertown Community School District’s Neidig Elementary School is one of our best examples of how alterations and additions can transform a 1950s era building into a state-of-the-art learning environment. Originally constructed in 1958, the school opened this fall with a new look, increased capacity to accommodate 600 students to support the District’s enrollment, and spaces designed to enhance the educational program.
The existing classroom wing was renovated to serve the primary grade levels with new cabinetry, finishes and toilet room renovations. A two-story classroom wing expansion for the intermediate grade levels features a centralized large group instruction area on each floor level for interactive and collaborative learning. Building circulation is captured for program space with areas provided for small group instruction and a learning stair at the main entrance lobby adjacent to the expanded administration area. The variety of spaces offer opportunities for student research, development and presentation as part of the next generation of learning.
Building updates in the specials wing of the building includes complete interior renovations to the library, art and music classrooms, as well as 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, new roof and new windows. In addition to the building improvements, site improvements include improved circulation to separate the parent and bus loops, expanded parking and new play areas.
SCHRADERGROUP is proud to have been a part of this building transformation and contributors to Quakertown Community School District’s vision for excellence in education.

SCHRADERGROUP Celebrates Council Rock School District’s Wrightstown Elementary School
SCHRADERGROUP (SG) attended Council Rock School District (CRSD)’s ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Wrightstown Elementary School on October 3, 2019. These new state of the art renovations and additions were completed in time for the 2019-2020 school year.
This addition and renovation project includes a renovated administrative suite, a new gymnasium, upgraded cafetorium, five new classrooms, a new connecting corridor, HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire protection replacement as well as improvements to ceilings, roof, floors, interior/exterior finishes and more. Children walked into a building that was essentially “brand-new” on opening day.
Students, teachers, School Board members, parents, and residents gathered as a community to celebrate the facility’s completed improvements. Students cut the ribbon with excitement. They were thrilled about their upgraded and completely air-conditioned school.
SG is honored to have had the opportunity to support this process and to see the impact the project has made on the Wrightstown community. We are proud to have been part of many building transformations in this community and look forward to sharing future experiences with CRSD!
