West Hanover Elementary School

Central Dauphin School District
Open Gallery

Central Dauphin School District worked the Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates to evaluate the ever changing population of the District’s 13 elementary buildings. The West Hanover community has been experiencing significant growth while their aging elementary school was not able to accommodate the number of students and the programs the District wanted to provide.  


Some of the Guiding Principles that were in place at the start of the design process included:

  • Existing building to remain during construction
  • Develop proposed building footprint with existing site topography
  • Improve vehicular and pedestrian traffic patterns
  • Align building functions and locations with exterior site usage
  • Increase parking capacity and develop optimal parking locations
  • Increase student capacity to meet increasing enrollment
  • Enrich the learning environment and educational curriculum
  • Enhance ADA and security throughout
  • Create open and accessible CLA’s that support academic classroom areas and curriculum
