Rich Duncan Construction broke ground on the future home of Howard Street Charter School on May 28th, 2019. Howard Street Charter School seeks to provide an innovative public education balancing the humanities, language, arts, science, and technology. After 22 years at its current location, Howard Street will be moving to its new downtown location in February of 2020. Howard Street Charter School was founded in 1997 as part of the South Salem High School building and was the first charter school to be added to the Salem-Keizer School District. The new central location will allow Howard Street to be close to public transportation and therefore allow easier access for families of those attending the school. The new location will have many firsts for Howard Street, including a dedicated science lab and its very own music classroom. The new location for Howard Street Charter School was designed by AC + Co Architecture and features include solar panels, plenty of glass that allows for natural daylight, and a large common area that includes a stunning bleacher stair for gatherings. Rich Duncan Construction, Inc. is very privileged to be their builder of choice!
