The new 73,000 s.f. Silas Willard can now accommodate 600 students, including 50 in special education. Built by Russell, the new school gives students the resources to succeed. With the 25 full sized classrooms, dedicated art room, music room and stage, administration offices, library, cafeteria, and gym, Silas Willard is truly a full-service elementary school. Gone are the confined spaces. The 18 core classrooms are specifically designed to hold an average of 25 students, ensuring smaller class sizes despite the increase in enrollment. Everything in Silas Willard serves to enhance the students’ learning environment.

From the first time that we met with the Russell team about this project, we were impressed by their professionalism and willingness to do whatever it took to get us up to speed on the project, to incorporate new ideas, and to assist us in bringing the project in on time and on budget. To say that the Russell team has met and exceeded those expectations would be an understatement.
