Third-party engineering firms have determined that Goochland Elementary School (GES) is the school that has the most system (HVAC, electrical, plumbing) and programmatic issues. Even after critical renovations in 2017, GES is the first of our three elementary schools that need to be replaced. There is no gymnasium at the current school and the library is the size of a classroom. Students in our preschool programs and students who are walking to physical education classes cross a busy parking lot in all weather conditions. Furthermore, as the population in Goochland grows, so does our elementary school enrollment. As a centralized location, Goochland ES will be built with a capacity of 650 students to accommodate future growth.
