Update: September 2, 2014
On the same day we officially opened the new school for students we completed the demolition of the old school! The students and families were amazed with the new place and the good news is that it will get better and better over the next few months. Additional landscaping will be added to the grounds, super graphics and inspirational quotes will adorn the walls, a solar observatory is being designed, playgrounds and outdoor basketball courts will be constructed and a full size synthetic field will complete the campus. The next big event will be the grand opening on Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. Hope to see you there!
NOTE: Special thanks to all of the parents and ACPS employees who volunteered their time to make sure we were ready for day one. We could not have done it without you!
