4515 North Fairmount Street
Anticipating growth in this area of the School District, in May 1960, ten acres of land were purchased at this site on North Fairmount Street to be used for a school building. A bond referendum passed in 1969. Additional land was bought and construction of a new building was begun. The building opened in January of 1971.
Loren Stouffer was the first principal of Buchanan School.
In 2001 some additions and renovations were made to the building, updating for technology and an expanded media center.
