Anglophone West School District is looking forward to seeing the new Kindergarten-to-Grade 5 school on Fredericton’s northwest side being built on McAdam Avenue School’s current site. The new school will be home to McAdam Avenue and Nashwaaksis Memorial Elementary School students and will feature 27 classrooms that can accommodate nearly 530 students. The facility will also include space for music and performing arts, a gym, a library and a cafeteria. In addition, its design will provide flexible learning environments, such as multi-use rooms. “The addition of a new building to the school district and community is always a wonderful reason to celebrate,” said Anglophone West School District superintendent David McTimoney. “Students, families and staff will benefit, and learning will take place in a specially designed setting to accommodate student needs. This is an exciting day for Anglophone West School District and the city of Fredericton.”
