A new neighborhood school will replace the 100 year old A.D. Stowell Elementary School in Hannibal’s well established South Side. During initial planning the citizens of the South Side spoke with one voice and lobbied to maintain their neighborhood school, contrary to common trends to consolidation. As a result, this new school is being built across the street from its current location where residential demolition and street re-alignment needed to occur.
This school features student learning in eighteen self-contained classrooms for grades Kindergarten through Grade 5, designated Art and Music rooms, and designated seminar rooms for Special Needs children. Flexible and versatile large group activities are held in the Library, designated Gymnasium, and “The Commons” which couples as the Auditorium and Cafeteria.
Student safety and security, day-lighting, indirect lighting, way finding, and individual temperature control are special features that enhance the educational environment for students at this school.
