NEW: Cary Woods Elementary & JF Drake Middle Renderings

Enrollment has surpassed 8,700 and ACS is one of the fastest growing school systems in Alabama with an average of approximately 185 new students per year for the past five years (2014-2019).

To address enrollment growth, the ACS School board approved a 10 year facilities plan in 2014 and updated that plan in May of 2018.  The school system’s 2028 Facilities Master Plan is inclusive of new construction, renovation, and demolition projects along with other facility upgrades necessary to facilitate student capacity for ACS over the next 10 years.

The next phase of the facility master plan, ACS will begin significant construction projects on the campuses of Cary Woods Elementary School and Drake Middle School in the summer of 2019.
