Princess Anne Middle School Moves Into a New Building
In a recent report, Princess Anne Middle School ranked in the top 10% of all schools in Virginia in math and reading proficiency. The percentage of students who are proficient in these subjects is higher than the state average of 85%. The school also has a higher student-teacher ratio than the state average of 16:1.
The school’s new building has an architectural design that resembles the Old Donation School. It features a green roof, a courtyard and an indoor walking track above the gym. The building also includes alternative seating areas for students to use. Principal Dr. Sandra Brown says every space in the new building is meant to enhance learning.
The new building will replace the existing school, which closed in 2011. The new building is planned to be completed by September 2021 and cost a total of $78 million. The building will be approximately 253,000 square feet, which is a significant upgrade over the old building. The school will also feature a community entrance and a large, circular courtyard.
The new building will feature classroom wings and administrative and student services spaces. It will also have space for art and physical education. It will also include a discovery center. There will also be new football, baseball, and basketball courts. The new building will be on a twenty-four-acre site next to the current Princess Anne Middle School. It will be a two-story building with separate wings for each grade level.
