These photos are artist renderings of the architect’s design for the new school. See the full Architect’s presentation from July 20, 2016. Construction began on 2017. The H-B Woodlawn Program will move to The Heights in the fall of 2019.
On December 18, 2014, to address future overcrowding at the middle school level, the School Board voted to move H-B Woodlawn to a site in Rosslyn currently occupied by the Wilson School. H-B Woodlawn, the HILT program, and the Stratford Program will begin the 2019-2020 school year at a newly constructed building on the site. The estimated capacity of the building will be 775. H-B Woodlawn will have grown by 10% by Fall of 2019 to accommodate the crowding in Arlington.
A new 1,000 seat neighborhood middle school, Dorothy Hamm Middle School, will occupy the current building on Vacation Lane, starting in 2019 as well. Construction on Vacation Lane for the new middle school started in 2018.
