Croughton ES History

Opened: 1982
Closed: 1993

When Croughton American Elementary opened for the 1981-82 school year, the school consisted of one building specifically designed as a school, two WWII Quonset huts, and a kindergarten building. In the main building there were seven classrooms, a science room, a library and an administrative block. Four classrooms were located in the Quonset huts. In 1984 the elementary and middle school were incorporated into a new contemporary design building. The elementary school was located in the south wing, common areas were in the center, and the middle school was in the north wing.

For the 1981-82 school year the elementary school had 180 students in grades Kindergarten through five. A learning disabilities teacher, a reading improvement specialist and a nurse were assigned to the school. Dr. Ray Smith was principal for the 1984-85 school year and for several more years.

There were 530 students in grades K–5 for the 1987-88 school year. The enrollment remained constant for the next several years.

In 1993-94 the schools at Croughton were consolidated into one unit school, Croughton American School.
