New School


The Derry Cooperative School District is excited to propose the construction of a new school to replace the aging Derry Village Elementary and South Range Elementary.  This new school represents more than just bricks and mortar; it embodies hope, progress, and the unwavering commitment to providing the next generation with the best possible learning environment. The shared vision for a nurturing, stimulating, and inclusive educational space unites the community, fostering a sense of unity and pride as they eagerly anticipate the doors of this new elementary school opening to welcome students into a world of boundless opportunities.
