River Grove Elementary

The new River Grove Elementary School for the Lake Oswego School District will be constructed on the same site as the existing school. This site is approximately 9.26 acres in the City of Lake Oswego. Construction is slated to begin June 2022 and completed for school to open Fall 2024. Students and staff will be moved to the Uplands Elementary School swing site for the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 school years. The district is currently planning for this project to be competitively bid within a pre-selected pool of bidders.

The scope of work includes demolition and abatement of the existing 1968 school building which is approximately 58,000sf, with an additional 9,600sf of portable classroom buildings.
