Design Plans Approved for Crown High School in Gaithersburg

The Montgomery County school board approved design plans for Crown High School (9410 Fields Road, Gaithersburg) at its meeting this past Thursday, March 24. Crown will accommodate over 2,000 students and will alleviate the overcrowding that is occurring in nearby Gaithersburg, Northwest, Quince Orchard, Richard Montgomery, and Wootton high schools. The project is estimated to cost around $180 million.

According to the presentation, the school will utilize onsite renewable energy sources such as solar panels and geothermal energy. The City was able to secure the site as part of the negotiations related to the Crown Farm Annexation Agreement X-182 on August 7, 2006.  The undeveloped 30 acre site is adjacent to Crown Neighborhood Three and is located at the intersection of Fields Road and Omega Drive.

The school is expected to open in 2027.
