The Springdale School is a part of the Corbett School District in Oregon. The school is listed on the National Register of Historic Places but has not been in use since 1995.

The Corbett School District realizing a need for more space to accommodate rapid student growth in the district wanted to utilize the Springdale School once again. The District submitted a Request for Proposals for Architectural Services to renovate the abandoned school building but since the building's Occupancy Permit had expired years ago, the County required the facility be upgraded to meet present day code requirements, including seismic and energy upgrades.

The Rommel Architectural Partnership was hired in January 2012 to begin work on the school renovation. One of the primary challenges the firm experienced on the project was that the owner did not have any documents detailing the construction of the original building. As a result, the architect was left with many unforeseen existing conditions that were discovered as construction progressed. Shortly after the project started construction, the school board decided to obtain additional money to complete Phase 2 and 3 which included a seismic upgrade of the original 1935 building, replacing windows to match the original design, upgrade the HVAC system, lighting, insulation and energy systems.

The Springdale School officially opened the Phase 1 portion of the building renovation to the public on August 24, 2012 with Phase 2 and 3 completed on October 1, 2012. Both students and faculty are now enjoying the Springdale School Alteration.
