GOWER MIDDLE & WEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT 62
Located in suburban DuPage County, Illinois, the Gower School District has long enjoyed stable enrollment and academic success. Taking positive steps to improve its curriculum and continue as a 21st Century learning center, Gower School District 62 embarked on a renovation and expansion program for their two schools.
Their middle school’s exploratory programs of Industrial Tech, Art, and Consumer Science, along with three Science labs, were enlarged and updated. An auxiliary gym and fitness room were added on the building’s east side by the existing gym and locker rooms. Life safety improvements were made throughout the school.
Gower West, the District’s elementary school, received health life safety improvements. To better support the District’s academic mission, three of its existing classrooms were renovated and repurposed as two Early Childhood Center classrooms.
