Alice West Fleet Elementary School

on the Jefferson Middle School Site

Project Information:

The APS Capital Improvement plan for FY2015-24 included funding for a new 725-seat elementary school. The Thomas Jefferson Working Group (TJWG) and the South Arlington Working Group (SAWG) were established to study the site. In December 2015 both the School Board and the County Board voted to approve Thomas Jefferson as the site for a new neighborhood elementary school to open in September 2019. In January of 2018, the School Board approved the final design with a capacity of 752 students.
