A Community Proposal
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Lincoln Akerman School (LAS) Renovation site. The School Board proposes 1) adding 3 classrooms and a dedicated gymnasium to accommodate needed educational space, and 2) addressing large infrastructure needs related to building age.
Through this site, we hope to educate and inform everyone in Hampton Falls. Join our email list!

Please review the School Board Proposal, also available in hard copy at LAS, Hampton Falls Free Library, HF Post Office or HF Town Hall -- we hope you'll gain context before joining us
The School Board conducted thorough due diligence over the last several years, with fine-tuned focus this past year, reviewing: 1) recommendations from nearly fifty Hampton Falls citizens who donated thousands of hours to investigate, identify and assess these conditions, 2) outcomes from town meetings and publications where these issues were well communicated and acknowledged by most citizens in the community, and 3) potential solutions identified in partnership with professionals, residents and administration.
An investment in the infrastructure of our town and school is now warranted. Our challenge is how best to manage this expense and share the burden with current and future residents who will benefit from the investment. To develop a proposal, the School Board has worked with professionals in the construction, academic and financial industries.
- Renovating older, substandard areas of the school
- Adding cost effective space to manage existing enrollment and curriculum needs
