History of Andrew Maier Elementary

Andrew Maier Elementary School is located at 355 Andrew Maier Boulevard in Blandon, Pennsylvania.  The school was named in honor of Andrew Maier, a Reading baker who donated the land on which the school was built. 

The original building was erected in 1951.  The first major renovations to the school occurred in 1973, including an "open space" area, a library, and a multi-purpose room.  In 1992, Andrew Maier Elementary School received a major overhaul, including a new gymnasium, computer lab, art, and music rooms, as well as ten new classrooms. Beginning in the fall of 2020, the landscape on the campus of the school started to change. The Andrew Maier Elementary School Campus Green Infrastructure project, a.k.a. “Learning by Nature”, a comprehensive plan developed in coordination between Fleetwood Area School District and Berks Nature was started.  This project was composed of several initiatives to provide approximately 240 elementary students, their families, and innumerable community members with access to a greatly improved wildlife habitat, educational experiences, and exposure to sustainable, environmentally responsible school campus management practices.

Andrew Maier Elementary School, as well as Willow Creek Elementary School, operate under a K-4 organizational structure.  At each grade level, a planned course of study (curriculum guide) has been developed by the instructional staff for each subject taught.  In addition to the regular education programs, special education and gifted programs complement and reinforce the various grade levels.

The staff at Andrew Maier consists of general education and special education teachers, Title I reading specialists, art, music, media, STEM, and physical education teachers, a school counselor, nurse, speech and language teacher, paraprofessionals and a school psychologist.  The office staff consists of the principal, a secretary, and a clerical aide.  In addition, the Parent-Teacher Club is very supportive of the school, providing a variety of programs, activities and materials for students and staff.

The Andrew Maier Elementary School staff is committed to excellence, providing a strong program of education that gives all students the opportunities they need to reach their fullest potential in a warm, friendly, and challenging learning environment.
