The Arlington County Board today approved a new $35 million elementary school with 28 classrooms, athletic fields, and new parking on the Williamsburg Middle School campus.
“More and more families are recognizing that Arlington is a great place to raise and educate your children,” said Arlington County Board Chairman J. Walter Tejada. “With enrollment surging in our public schools, the Board’s action today will help the school system meet the growing demand for classroom space, while ensuring that this new elementary school will fit in well with the neighborhood.”
The new elementary school, which will serve approximately 630 students, is part of the Arlington Public Schools plan for meeting the challenge posed by increased enrollment. There will be four classrooms for each grade level and two pre-kindergarten classrooms, among others, for a total of 28 classrooms.
