What is The Heights?

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 moved 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 EL program, and the Shriver Program began the 2019-2020 school year at a newly constructed building on the site. H-B Woodlawn has grown by 15% to accommodate the crowding in Arlington.

A new 1,000 seat neighborhood middle school, Dorothy Hamm Middle School, now occupies the old building on Vacation Lane, as well. Construction on Vacation Lane for the new middle school started in 2018 and continues through the 2019-2020 school year.
