”Next in importance to Freedom and Justice is popular education, without which neither Freedom nor Justice can be permanently maintained.”      - James Abram Garfieldeducation 4

Educational facilities enrich and protect our most precious national resource: our children. These structures allow for our communities to gather for social events and safe shelter. In short, our schools are structures that are cornerstones of the community. Because of this, WJPA takes special pride in its portfolio of work in the Educational sector – and we feel honored to be entrusted with the responsibility that these structures demand.

WJPA, and its employees, have performed structural analysis, design, and special inspection services for many elementary, middle, and high schools.
