West Sacramento’s Riverbank Elementary School Gets Makeover

West Sacramento’s Riverbank Elementary School Gets Makeover

Riverbank Elementary was opened more than 50 years ago as a high school. Since that time it has morphed and changed to better serve the community. During the 2011-2012 school year the 12-acre campus was home to third through eighth graders but after a 10-week, $8-million overhaul the campus reopened on August 22, 2012 greeting students’ kindergarten through eighth grade.

While minor work started in May while school was still in session, the majority of the work began in June when school was out, giving HMH Builders just 10 short weeks to complete this unique transformation that not only allows for more students but will improve the students’ learning environment and safety.

Starting on the outside, the parking lot was redesigned with safety in mind, providing much needed space to drop students off, and separating the entrances for kindergarten through fifth grade from those for sixth through eighth grade.
