Exterior rendering of new school on Wilson Blvd

I hear H-B Woodlawn is moving to Rosslyn – when is that happening?

We will be moving into our new building on Wilson Blvd in Rosslyn in the Fall of 2019.

Is the Stratford Program moving with us?

Yes, although for the 2018-2019 school year they are located at the Reed Building in Westover, temporarily, to make way for construction here on Vacation Lane. They will meet back up with us in the Fall of 2019 in Rosslyn and we will continue to be co-located.

What will happen to our current home on Vacation Lane?

APS will turn our current building into its 6th comprehensive middle school, Dorothy Hamm Middle School, also to open in fall of 2019. APS is building an addition on the west side of the building, closest to Old Dominion Drive, in the lower parking lot area formerly used by the Stratford Program. There will be minimally invasive work inside the current structure, taking place in the summer months, when no students are in the building. Monthly updates are posted to the APS project website.

How is construction going at our new building in Rosslyn?

Demolition of the former structure, the Wilson School, began in the summer of 2017. Construction of our new building is currently underway.   Monthly construction updates are posted to the APS project website.

What happened on the upper field (Stratford Park), closest to Old Dominion Drive and the tennis courts? That looks new, too!

This project was independent of APS. Arlington Department of Parks and Recreation, which owns Stratford Park, overhauled the baseball field to make it a state of the art youth baseball field. They also renovated the basketball and tennis courts on the park site, and added picnic and bleacher seating, all ADA accessible. This project is complete, and the H-B Woodlawn community can use the park during the school day.
