This new building will serve as the replacement for the existing Princess Anne Middle School, constructed on the site of the former building.
Features of the new school currently on the drawing board include a large, circular courtyard, with academic courtyards between grade level houses. These two-story grade level houses are individually accessible from the bus drop-off. A community entrance allows for convenient after-hours access to the theater and gymnasium. Sustainable design features include an emphasis on daylighting and the addition of a green roof on top of the kitchen. A constructed wetlands area is planned to alleviate the issue of storm water runoff.
Construction is slated to begin in Fall 2018. The new school is scheduled to open Fall 2021.
