Facilities Master Plan

Building Our Future: Master Plan Construction Phase

Community members gathered around draft plans at a meetingSince the fall of 2015, the Upper Arlington community has come together to craft a long-term, financially sensible master plan for the district's aging schools and inform the design process for the six projects in the first phase of the master plan. 
 
In the spring of 2019, Upper Arlington Schools will begin BUILDING OUR FUTURE for the Upper Arlington students and community of today and generations to come.

The first phase of the community's master plan will build a new Upper Arlington High School and renovate or rebuild all five elementary schools. The first phase also includes building athletic fields on the district-owned land behind Tremont Elementary School adjacent to Northam Park. The new and renovated schools have been designed to provide much-needed additional space for the district's growing enrollment. In the event that growth excceeds projections, each project has been designed to have a logical place for a classroom addition, if needed. The projections as of October 2018 indicate districtwide enrollment growth of approximately 1,250 students, or 20 percent, in the next 10 years.
 
Construction for the first phase of the community's master plan is expected to follow the tentative timeline below, updated as of March 2019. This timeline may be revised based on any potential delays that arise.
