BCPS, Baltimore County officials break ground on new northeast middle school

ROSEDALE, MD—Ground has officially been broken on a new northeast Baltimore County middle school.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at 10 a.m. on Thursday morning at the new school’s location at 5210 King Avenue (21237).

BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams and Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski joined members of the Board of Education of Baltimore County and the Baltimore County delegation in officially breaking ground for a new 1,410-seat northeastern middle school designed to meet the educational needs of one of Baltimore County’s fastest-growing areas.

The $103 million project, which will provide nearly 205,500 square feet of learning space along King Avenue in the Rossville community of Baltimore County, is scheduled to open to students for the 2024-2025 school year.

“This will be the first new middle school in eastern Baltimore County in a half-century,” said Councilman David Marks. “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.”

“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,” Marks added.
