New Prince George Elementary School

Prince George County's New Elementary School
 
Nestled along Middle Road, Prince George County's newest elementary school will serve as the new home for some of the county’s elementary-aged students when classes begin at the school in September of 2022. The campus will replace William A. Walton Elementary School, which has served our community faithfully for over 50 years.
 

The new elementary school will have a student capacity of 850, which will support the educational needs of current students and those in the future as Prince George County continues to grow. The new campus will feature industry standard safety and security measures to protect students and staff, adequate separation of public and private spaces, and use natural light to illuminate parts of the school, helping to reduce energy consumption.

The new school is also being built with the learning principles of today in mind, where student collaboration and engagement are highlighted. Additionally, the campus will have built-in flexibility to allow for learning spaces to be adjusted to best support the needs of students.

In total, the new elementary school will cost $32.9 million once completed in the fall of 2022.

Work at the site of Prince George County's new elementary school continues. Development of the school building's dirt pad continues to progress ahead of the eventual concrete pouring that will serve as the school's foundation. Heavy equipment is now working toward the front of the campus as dirt is moved in development of the school's soon-to-be parking area.
