On January 28, 2015, Green Street Academy broke ground on a new home: a state-of-the-art school building in West Baltimore.
The school, co-founded in 2010 by Warnock Foundation chairman David Warnock, is restoring a nearly abandoned 1926 school building — the former Gwynns Falls Park Junior High School — into a new facility for the charter school. The possibilities at the new location include more than 8 acres of green space, nearly 150,000 square feet of learning space, and access to multiple bus lines.
The groundbreaking was held at 125 N. Hilton Street, the site of the new school, and attended by more than 100 supporters, including Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
The restoration project is financed by Bank of America and The Reinvestment Fund, and has been made possible with support from the Warnock Foundation, the Abell Foundation, and additional individual and foundation donors.
