Peterson Middle School and the New Laurelwood Elementary School Masterplan

  • Voter Approved General Obligation Bond Measure BB allocated Bond funds to design and build a new elementary school for Laurelwood Elementary on the Patrick Henry Campus and new fields at Peterson Middle School. In order to create a plan that encompasses all of the District's assets, the SCUSD is creating a Masterplan for the new Laurelwood Elementary and a portion of Peterson Middle School.  A Masterplan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a visionary site plan to guide future expansion with enhanced student and community access to the sites.  

    The District understands the significant impact the Bryan Osborne Nature Center and The Farm has on students and the community.  This process will allow the District to strategically plan for improvements and greater access to both areas. 

    The areas included in the Masterplan are:

    • Patrick Henry Campus
    • Peterson Fields
    • Peterson Tennis Courts
    • Peterson Parking Lots and Drop Off Areas
    • The Bryan Osborne Nature Center
    • The SCUSD Farm

    Currently, funding is only identified for the new Laurelwood Elementary School and the Peterson Fields. The other improvements identified in the Masterplan will be completed as funding is secured. Once the Masterplan is complete in Spring of 2022, the design of the new Laurelwood Elementary School and the Peterson Fields will begin.
