Welcome to Sargent Elementary

Our STORY

The town of North Andover purchased 15 acres of land in the late 1980s from the Calzetta family. The Sargent School was built on the fields of the Calzetta farm. On the land where the school now stands, apple and peach trees once grew. In 1995 the doors opened to students making Sargent the first new elementary school in North Andover in 38 years.

Social-emotional learning is an integral part of North Andover’s educational mission. We feel it is important to stand behind the increasingly strong evidence that social-emotional skills positively affect student academic outcomes. At the Sargent school we teach, model, and reinforce our RAISE values all year long.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Why do we need a new elementary school building? 

    Kittredge Elementary School was originally constructed in 1949, the total square footage of the building totals approximately 32,434 square feet. Four pod modular classroom buildings were attached in 2010, and a prefabricated gymnasium building was erected in 2013. 

    The mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems have been renovated over the years, but the original components are beyond their useful life and are beginning to fail. Some of the mechanical systems that need replacing include the steam boilers and the entire steam system, and the condensing gas fired boilers. The existing plumbing systems and fixtures do not meet current building codes and are not ADA compliant. The electrical lighting systems need to be replaced, including the emergency lighting and fire alarm systems. Security and technology upgrades throughout the entire school are needed as well.  

    The dated envelope of the building is also in poor condition, resulting in excessive energy consumption. The roof needs to be completely replaced, and there are masonry cracks and damaged brick on the façade. All exterior doors and windows need exterior sealant replacements.  

    The existing building is not handicap accessible and does not meet current accessibility codes. Entrances are in need of handicap accessibility upgrades. Vertical lifts or ramps need to be added at the lobby to the upper classroom area, and elevators need to be installed. 

    The entire building is outdated and does not support an educational model that meets the needs of today’s students. A new elementary school will provide a healthy and modern learning environment that will allow both students and staff to thrive.
