The Newly Renovated and Expanded McFarland Middle School Opens!

Mayor Bowser cut the ribbon for the newly expanded and renovated MacFarland on the first day of school. This project transformed the historic MacFarland building into a state-of-the-art dual-language middle school. Initially constructed in 1923, the building features several cutting-edge sustainability elements including photovoltaic panels and a green roofing system and is seeking LEED Gold Certification.

During the ceremony, the Mayor also announced the award of $8.2M in grants to community-based organizations providing afterschool and out-of-school time programming for District youth.
