MCPS has just a pulled a $198 million permit toward the construction of the new Northwood High School at 919 University Blvd in Silver Spring (the same site the school is currently on), according to a recent Maryland Newsletters report. During construction, Northwood High School will occupy Woodward High School in Rockville starting July 2024. More renderings of Northwood available below, per MCPS.

A Fiscal Year 2021 appropriation was approved to begin the architectural design for the Northwood High School project. A Fiscal Year 2022 appropriation was approved to continue the construction for the reopening of Charles W. Woodward High School ( to address the urgent space needs at Walter Johnson High School and the Downcounty Consortium high schools). A Fiscal year 2023 appropriation was requested for construction cost increases and construction funds for the Northwood High School project and a Fiscal Year 2023 appropriation was requested for construction cost increases and for the balance of funds for the reopening of the Charles W. Woodward High School projects. While the additional expenditures were approved, due to fiscal constraints, the County Council, in the adopted Fiscal Year 2023-2028 CIP, delayed the Northwood High School project and the reopening of Charles W. Woodward High School by one year.

A Fiscal Year 2024 appropriation was approved for construction funds and construction cost increases for Northwood High School and construction cost increases for the reopening of Charles W. Woodward High School. As part of the recommended Fiscal Year 2025-2030 CIP, the completion date for the Northwood High School project is delayed one-year due to an extension of the construction timeline. Therefore, the recommended completion date for Northwood High School is August 2027. As a result of Northwood High School remaining at Charles W. Woodward High School, its holding facility, for one additional year, the recommended completion date for the reopening of Charles W. Woodward High School is August 2027.
