Main Avenue School is a K-6 site which serving approximately 300 students.

The original school was built in 1953 and underwent several upgrades over the past six decades. The overhaul began in the summer of 2013. Crews demolished two of the original wings and replaced them with new buildings that include seven classrooms, administrative offices, a kitchen, a full-sized basketball court, a stage, and a multipurpose room, which will serve as a community center.

The cost of the renovation was $9.4 million with the funding coming from bonds approved by the local school community.

The old campus was on a septic tank system but the new site is connected to the City of Sacramento sewer system.
