Baltimore Unveils Newly Renovated Fort Worthington Elementary/Middle School


Baltimore leaders gathered in front of the newly renovated $37 million Fort Worthington Elementary/Middle School Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The newly constructed school is part of a $1 billion building initiative, known as the 21st Century School Construction and Revitalization Program, to replace the aging schools in the city.

The Frederick Elementary School in Mill Hill also underwent renovation and is expected to open, along with Fort Worthington in time for the beginning of the 2017-18 school year on September 5. There are also several other school buildings that are in the planning stages.

Seven other schools under construction are scheduled to open in the middle of the school year. The General Assembly in partnership with the Interagency Committee on Public School Construction, Maryland Stadium Authority and Baltimore City Public Schools established the building initiative in 2013, which is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

The newly constructed Fort Worthington features a technology lab, media studio and efficient lighting. Former Dr. Rayner Browne Elementary/Middle students will join those in Fort Worthington and former Samuel F.B. Morse students will move into Frederick.
