Newark Public Schools retained EI Associates to design the replacement of the landmark Newark Schools Stadium. Deteriorated beyond repair, the aged and historic concrete structure had been the venue for countless high school and community sporting events for the City of Newark since 1925 including the 1928 National Women's Olympic track and field trails. The site was also the venue of a track event involving Olympian Jesse Owens.

The recently completed Newark Schools Stadium is reborn as a tribute to its proud and historic past. The design of the new facade pays homage to the original iconic arched columns. A new clock tower/ticket window symbolizes Newark's past while embracing the future. New, multi-purpose synthetic turf fields and stadium lighting accommodate a variety of track and field events as well as football, soccer and softball. Seating for 5,600 spectators is provided along with amenities such as concession areas, team locker and shower rooms and public toilet facilities.

The new Stadium provides a living link to the historical traditions of the Newark Schools and the revitalization of the City of Newark.

EI Associates specializes in the design of K-12 educational facilities. EI Associates' project team partners with clients from start to finish, producing educational facilities that meet the educational goals and are on budget, on time, and operate with maximum energy efficiency and minimum maintenance.
