Visit the 21st Century Schools website to learn more about Walter P. Carter Building

This 149,953 sq. ft. replacement school project will absorb students from closing school Guilford and will co-locate two school programs, Walter P. Carter PK-8, a traditional PK-8 school and Lois T. Murray, a separate PK-8 public day school program.  The project is in the Design Phase with design expected to be complete in late January 2019 and construction beginning in late June 2019.  It is anticipated that the existing Walter P. Carter student population will swing offsite to the Winston building in June 2019.  Lois T. Murray students will remain in their current location until the new building is completed.  Substantial completion is scheduled for November 2020 and opening for students in January 2021.
