The current home of Broad Rock Elementary was built starting in 2010 and opened to students in January 2013. The 90,800 square foot facility was constructed parallel to the original building as part of the "Building a Better Richmond" Program. This Eco-Friendly building boasts instructional technology in every classroom, a state of the art media center and gymnasium, and the attached Broad Rock Community Center. For the 2015-2016 School year we added a modular unit that houses twelve classrooms and a cafeteria. For the 2016-2017 School year we added another modular unit that houses 12 more classrooms and a third that houses our second cafeteria space.
