Two New Schools Ready to Welcome Norfolk Students


This new school year is bringing big changes in Norfolk. The city completed construction on two new schools this week, just in time for the students’ return. The Southside STEM Academy at Campostella and the Richard H. Bowling Elementary School are two of five new schools coming to Norfolk, under the Building the Future initiative.

New elementary schools at Larchmont, Ocean View and Camp Allen are still under construction. According to the official schedule, they should all be complete by next summer.

All five schools will feature inclusive playgrounds from Playcore.

S.B. Ballard Construction was selected to complete all five projects. You can watch live video of the progress on their website.
