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: July 28 - August 11

    Earthwork activities and utility capping  are ongoing. The foundation to grade permit has been issued, and the geopier subcontractor is scheduled to mobilize on 7/28/2021. Drilling on site will begin by 7/30/2021 as demolition of the parking lot begins. The geothermal subcontractor is scheduled to bring additional equipment on site.  Please note that the drilling activities require a large piece of equipment that will be visible to neighbors. Drilling does cause additional vibrations, but these are monitored to ensure they will not have any significant impact on our neighbors’ properties.
