Douglas MacArthur Modernization

Kids raising their hands in class
  • 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.

Latest Updates

  • Construction Update:  April 8 - April 22

    Dust monitors and rodent control measures have been installed on site. The removal of trees on the property will begin the week of April 12, with measures being taken to salvage and repurpose the wood.

    Due to the discovery of additonal hazardous materials, the abatement process has been delayed by an estimated two weeks. The new estimated date to begin demolition activities is the week of April 29. We do not expect this delay to impact the overall timeline.
