Fort Worthington Elementary School, located on the east side near Dr. Rayner Browne and Collington Square Elementary/Middle Schools and across from the Lakewood early learning center, was considered for renovation or replacement. After gathering input from the school community and analyzing options, plans are now underway for a new building. Reduction in maintenance expenses will offset the higher cost of new construction over renovation – and the community will benefit from an inspiring new building that will further the school’s mission of providing an environment that fosters high student achievement.
With a design that will separate classrooms from public and gathering areas (including the cafeteria and gymnasium) and improve circulation and flow throughout, the new building will continue to be a welcoming setting for both learning and the community activities that take place outside of school time and have long made Fort Worthington a focal point of its neighborhood.
