Marks said this will be the first middle school in eastern Baltimore County in nearly 50 years. He added that the northeast area is in the process of having two schools and one addition being built.

“Working with our partners on the Board of Education, in state and county government, we’ve supported three new schools in northeastern Baltimore County since 2018,” Marks said.

“The new Rossville Elementary School will open this summer, an expansion and renovation is advancing at Pine Grove Middle School, and planning is underway to look at our long-neglected high schools.”

Bevins added the new school will be “tremendous addition” for the greater community.

This was a collaborative effort between our local and state governments. I would like to thank County Executive Johnny Olszewski, my colleagues on the County Council, our partners in Annapolis, Superintendent Darryl Williams, School Board Chair Julie Henn, and many more for all of their hard work in making this a reality,” Bevins said in a statement.

Last Day for New Northeast Elementary Survey


The public has one more day to select from among two options for new boundary lines for elementary schools in northeastern Baltimore County. The deadline for taking the survey here is midnight today, Wednesday, Nov 17.

Survey results are part of the feedback that will be used by the Northeast Area Elementary Boundary Study Committee to choose an option and formulate a recommendation for new attendance boundaries.

The goal of the new boundaries is to relieve overcrowding through additional seats at a new northeast elementary school currently under construction at Rossville Boulevard and Gum Spring Road and a replacement building for Red House Run Elementary School.

The two options were developed by the committee, which has been meeting since September, and shared at a public information session on Nov. 3. The committee’s recommendation will go to BCPS leadership and finally to the Board of Education for action in March 2022.

To learn more about the process and access detailed maps, please visit the Northeast Area Elementary Boundary Study Web site
