Building History

Shaw Road Elementary School was opened in 1992 and is located in east Puyallup, south of East Pioneer and just west of Shaw Road. The project architect was Burr Lawrence Rising + Bates of Tacoma, Washington, and the general contractor was Absher Construction Company of Puyallup, Washington. Shaw Road Elementary was a state matched project with the local funds coming from the 1988 Bond Issue. 

The school was named in recognition of its location. The north-south roadway that borders this school site and connects East Pioneer Avenue with Old Military Road was named Shaw Road after the Shaw family who moved to this area in 1901. 

The education specification for the permanent building was designed to have a total of 18 general-use classrooms, two (2) kindergarten rooms, three (3) special education classrooms and a number of smaller specialty instructional spaces. In addition, the school has one (1) of the district's prototype play sheds. It became eligible for state matching funds for modernization or new construction in lieu of modernization in 2012.
