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.
