    About the West Gresham Elementary Building 

    West Gresham Elementary School, located at 330 Powell Boulevard, was built in 1923. In February of 2016, as a part of a school bond planning processing, the GBSD’s Bond Measure Planning Committee (BMPC) made a recommendation to the school board regarding WGES. The committee felt that the elementary school had faithfully served generations of students but, due to the condition of the building and the size of the campus, it should no longer be used as a school. The 2016 school bond passed and boundaries were adjusted. West Gresham Elementary School students and staff were moved to neighboring schools. At the time, the school district shared it would work with the community to determine how to best repurpose the West Gresham building to maintain this community asset.
