Rising from the ashes, Mission Elementary School reopened for elementary school students in Aug. 2011. There has been…More a Mission School in the region dating back to the 1854. The current location was built through the Works Progress Administration in 1937-38.
The campus had closed as an elementary school after the 1993-94 school year, and had been used as both a school for developmentally disabled students and adults since then.
The campus is being renovated to modern standards in two phases. The first phase renovated the newer Heisner building, opening in Aug. 2011 with nine classrooms, a multi-purpose room (that is being used as a cafeteria) and computer lab.
The second phase will open for the 2012-13 school year, and include a library, amphitheater and permanent cafeteria.
While the school's address is listed as Redlands, it is located on the border of Loma Linda and Redlands, and most of the students who will attend the school come from Loma Linda.
