Farley Elementary school is the newest addition to the Auburn-Washburn USD 437 school District. After the 2008 bond passed
the district started building its seventh elementary school to help with the growing enrollment.
The school is named after Dr. Jerry and Susan Farley. Dr. Jerry Farley is the president of Washburn University.
Farley Elementary has been built to be a "green" school.
Here are some of the ways our building is "green":
- During construction the workers used long lasting & durable masonry.
- There are low maintenance brick masonry & prefinished metal exterior materials that require no future painting.
- When possible materials with recycled content were used.
- Over 90% of spaces have direct views to the exterior allowing natural light in.
