Abstract or Summary
  • In selecting the site for a new school, a school district must consider four basic characteristics of a good site: size, physical features, location and costs. The size must be adequate to meet the state minimum standards and provide for future expansion. The physical features, soil, relief and slope should provide a well drained building base while keeping developmental costs at a minimum. A good location provides for safe, easy access for present and future enrollments while minimizing transportation costs. A good site is one that will exhibit excellent size, physical features and location while minimizing costs. This paper compares the Crescent Valley site selected by the Corvallis School District for its new high school with alternative sites available in 1966 but not considered by the district. The alternative sites were located in the Village Green district and 29th and Walnut Boulevard. Each site was evaluated through the use of a standardized school site rating form. The 29th and Walnut site possessed the highest ratings and would have been the best site available for the construction of a new high school.
