Douglas MacArthur Modernization

Kids reading in classroom
  • A new Douglas MacArthur Elementary School is scheduled to open its doors in January 2023. The original opening was scheduled for 2025, but in April 2019, the School Board voted to use swing space at the former Patrick Henry Elementary School for Douglas MacArthur students beginning in 2020. This decision allowed ACPS to move up the timeline for the Douglas MacArthur community.

    A total of $56,581,549 has been allocated to the project in the proposed FY 2020-29 Capital Improvement Program Budget.

    There are several ways to be involved in the process.
