The new, two-story Boze has maker spaces and classrooms designed to accommodate the project-based learning Boze is known for. It also includes a beautiful library with mountain views.
Community playfields along the front of the school (East 65th Street) and the community garden on campus are already open, and the new through street behind the campus (at 68th and L) opened this summer as well.
The new, two-story school can hold 550 students, preschool through fifth grade, about the same amount as the former building and its portable classrooms. Boze will continue to serve as a STEAM school (Science and Technology, interpreted through Engineering and the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements) focused on project-based learning partnered with TAF, the Technology Access Foundation.
Thank you, Tacoma voters!
A $500 million bond approved by voters in 2013 funded the new school.
