New Kent County School Board in partnership with the New Kent Board of Supervisors has been planning for the continued growth of our county.  After a lengthy search process beginning in 2018, the New Kent County Board of Supervisors recently purchased the property for the construction of the third elementary school for New Kent County Public Schools.

A community planning group has been working with Moseley Architects to design the new elementary school and to site the school on the proposed property.  The planning group consisting of parents, community members, as well as county and public school employees, created a mission statement that would inform the process.


The new elementary school planning team believes that the New Kent learners of today and tomorrow need a space that promotes creativity, collaboration, global awareness, critical thinking, and active learning.  To this end, the committee will endeavor to design a quality learning center where all students will feel emotionally and physically safe and motivated to explore their world.  The center’s design will utilize versatile spaces that allow for innovative and collaborative teaching methods, hands-on learning, community involvement, and, most importantly, recognition and nurturing of the unique potential of each student.  Being more than just a school, the learning center will be a modern community space that is accessible and inviting for all residents and designed with sufficient resources for many years to come.

The following plan was designed to reflect the mission of the community planning group.
