F1S Board Approves North Vista Elementary School Construction

Students could be attending a new North Vista Elementary School in two years.

The Florence 1 Schools Board of Trustees unanimously approved construction of the new elementary school at its Thursday, September 8th meeting at the McClenaghan Adminstrative Building, 500 S. Dargan St.  In February, the Board of Trustees  selected Jumper Carter Sease Architects of West Columbia to design the school and Thompson-Turner Construction as the construction management firm.

Demolition of the old Wilson High School should be completed soon, Superintendent Richard O’Malley. North Vista Elementary School will be built on that site. Plans call for the current North Vista Elementary School to be converted to a middle school at some point.

Athletic facilities and an aquatic center also could be built on the site, but construction for those facilities will be a separate project, Superintendent Richard O’Malley said.
