Name selected! Justice Alan Page Elementary School

At the October 27, 2020, Board Meeting, the District 622 School Board officially adopted Justice Alan Page Elementary School as the name for the new district elementary school in Maplewood, located on the current Maplewood Middle School site (2410 Holloway Ave E, Maplewood, MN 55109).

In naming the school, Superintendent Christine Tucci Osorio said that “It is a true privilege to be able to honor Justice Alan Page in such a meaningful way. Justice Page has been a friend to District 622 and a supporter to many of our alumni and staff of color in their pursuit of higher education. His legacy will have a positive impact on our school community for generations to come.”

The school is being built as a part of a district-wide improvement project after voters approved a $275 million bond referendum in 2019.

“We received 85 different name suggestions from the community which our naming committee narrowed down to five,” said Josh Anderson, the district’s director of communications. “After seeking further input from the community, our families, and our students, the committee made final recommendations to the superintendent’s cabinet. Naming the school after Justice Page, who is already involved in District 622 schools, was unanimously approved by the school board.”

The new Justice Alan Page Elementary School is scheduled to open in September 2022. Visit the district’s construction website to stay informed on developments with this project and other building initiatives in District 622.
