Built in 1893 and originally known as Park School, the one-room school was eventually replaced by the beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival building you see today. A portion of the current building was constructed in 1901 and throughout the years additions accommodated population growth. Each year since 2005, Park Hill Elementary has been updated to preserve the building and improve our students’ learning environment. With the addition of accessibility ramps, a second elevator, new outdoor playscapes, new carpets, kitchen flooring, a new roof, fresh paint, window repairs, updated plumbing, and new bathrooms, our neighborhood school continues to provide for our community of learners.
