Billy & Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary School Opening August 14th!
The Clark County School District is the 5th largest school district on the nation. After steady overcrowding over the years at surrounding local schools, CCSD has built six new elementary schools for the 2017-18 school year, with a seventh one to open in January 2018.
One of these new schools, Billy and Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary, is in Summerlin located at 215 Antelope Ridge Drive, 89138. The 101,620 square foot, 850-student capacity school will help relieve overcrowding at Givens, where last year the school had 1,085 students, but is only intended for 867. Nearby Staton Elementary is designed for only 784 but had 918 students, and Bonner elementary school had 921 but was built for only 584. Vassiliadis Elementary will offer 53 classrooms, including 2 flex classrooms, 1 STEM classroom, a library and 1 art classroom.
The school is located in Paseos village- the community’s largest track of new homes . There are 12 gated neighborhoods by seven different home builders in this area. These neighborhoods are all master-designed for a modern family: 50 different floor plans of living space that make use of the area’s elevation from stunning views over the Vegas valley to cooler temps.
Homes in The Paseos range from the $300,000s to more than $800,000 for anywhere from 1,850 square feet of living space to more than 4,200 square feet. Some homes even feature things such as rooftop decks, extra garage space, master suite retreats and casitas for extended family and visiting guests.
The new schools were made possible through CCSD’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The Capital Improvement Program uses bond funds that can only be applied to projects such as building new schools, school replacements, phased replacements, renovations, modernizations, technology upgrades and transportation. The new schools will add capacity for close to 6,000 more students.
The 6 new schools opening in August 2017 are:
- Billy and Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary School, Antelope Ridge and Desert Foothills
- Shelley Berkley Elementary School, Maule Avenue and Grand Canyon Drive
- Janis L. Jones Blackhurst Elementary School, Chartan Avenue and Pioneer Way
- Lomie G. Heard Elementary School, Lamb Boulevard and Kell Lane
- Dr. Beverly S. Mathis Elementary School, Arville Street and Mesa Verde Lane
- Josh Stevens Elementary School, Dave Wood Circle and East Galleria Drive
A seventh new school, Don and Dee Snyder Elementary School on Ford Avenue and Riley Street, will open in January 2018.
