New Forsyth County School Construction 

(Click on school names for maps of the new school locations)

Brandywine Elementary is located on Martin Rd. south of McFarland and Highway 9.  Brandywine is currently under construction with a total building cost of about $17.9 million. The funding for Brandywine Elementary has been paid for in part from prior referendums with the remaining half of funds coming from state reimbursements for money that we earned through the state’s capital outlay program.

DeSana Middle School is located on James Rd. just south and west of the intersection of McFarland Parkway and Union Hill Rd.  The total construction cost for the new middle school is $29,576,000 with state funding an amount of $10,949,105 and the local share being $18,626,895 from the 2014 bond.

FCSS will begin the redistricting process in the fall of 2015 in preparation of opening both the new elementary and middle schools in 2016.  Brandywine will pull students from four existing elementary schools, Big Creek, Midway, Shiloh Point and Vickery Creek.  The opening of Desana Middle School will directly alleviate overcrowding at two middle schools, Piney Grove and Vickery Creek.

New High School 
The new high school will be located in SW Forsyth on land between Mullinax Rd and Fowler Rd. The land purchase and construction is funded by the 2014 bond referendum. The school is projected to open in 3 years – August, 2018.

The process of naming the new high school is now underway with public input on the school name recommendations coming by this April.

Attendance lines for the new high school will be determined in the fall of 2017.
