Join the Department of General Services (DGS) and the District of Columbia Schools (DCPS) on Wednesday, July 16th at 7 pm for a construction update and report on proposed academic programming for the school.
This project will involve demolition of the Brookland Elementary School building built in the 1960’s (which closed in 2008) to make way for a brand new middle school building with a focus on world languages and arts-integrated learning.
The new school will be 100,000 sq-ft to accommodate 540 students and include a full-size gymnasium, specialized performance and practice spaces, and a media center in addition to standard classroom and office space. In addition, there will be a cluster of classrooms dedicated to world languages and an outdoor learning area atop the gym to serve as an alternative space for learning and socializing.
The project shall be complete in time for the 2015-2016 school year.
