Proposed Improvements

  • Replace with new 450-student school on current site

Tell me more

With 375 students, Wallace is over capacity and is functionally outdated. The unreinforced brick school was built in 1942 and seismic upgrades are necessary, yet are cost-prohibitive and would further restrict the use of the school.

  • Provide learning and instructional spaces necessary to help improve academics and quality of student and staff life
  • Address severe parking and traffic flow problems in the neighborhood
