What's the "Fernway Standard"

If the Building Shaker Schools bond issue passes in November 2023, all elementary schools will be renovated to the "Fernway Standard," a model focused on sustainability, safety, and comfort.

About Fernway Elementary School


After the fire in 2018, the interior of Fernway Elementary School was stripped down to the studs. The only thing left of the original building was the exterior walls.

What Changed?

The school was revitalized with a focus on sustainability and basic needs. Classrooms were enlarged. New heating and cooling systems were installed. Energy-efficient lighting was installed building-wide. Modern bathrooms were put in place. A modern library, design space, and lunch room/multi-purpose room were added. And, a new elevator was installed to give all students and staff access to the second floor. A safety vestibule was added at the main entrance.


What Stayed?

The exterior of Fernway retained its historic facade.
