J.O. Wilson is scheduled to receive a complete renovation and modernization starting during the 2024-25 school year. The construction project will make our school fully ADA accessible and certified as a net-zero energy school. We will receive a new gym, new playgrounds, new common spaces and state-of-the-art classrooms and amenities throughout the campus.
During construction, the J.O. community will move to a DCPS swing space less than two miles away at 810 26th Street NE. We are currently scheduled to move in January of 2025, and to return to a brand new building for the 2026-2027 school year. During that time, DCPS will run buses daily from J.O. Wilson to the swing site for morning drop-off, afternoon dismissal and aftercare for families who find it most convenient to continue to take their children to J.O. Full transportation plans will become available closer to our move-out date.
Ongoing updates on the project, including presentations from the architecture firm Perkins Eastman, can be viewed here.
