Bear Creek School
In an effort to accommodate the growth in this community, a new intermediate school was built to house grades 4, 5 and 6 and is capable of accommodating 1,200 students. Because of the potential for increased enrollment in the district, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems were designed to add approximately 300 students in the future. In addition, the library, cafeteria and kitchen were designed to accommodate the additional students. An auxiliary gym serves as a third teaching station for physical education classes as well as accommodate after school activities.
Construction of the New Bear Creek Intermediate school avoided multiple additions and renovation projects to other facilities and had the least construction impact on students and staff. The facility was recognized to be the lowest cost per SF school constructed in PA for 2009.
