Renovation of Crossfield Elementary School to begin next year

Construction on nearly 100,000 square feet of space at Crossfield Elementary School in Herndon is expected to begin next year.

Hunter Mill District School Board Representative Melanie Meren said earlier this month that the project will kickstart next year and is expected to wrap up in 2025.

Preliminary plans include a library, a main office, a media center, an updated kitchen, new classrooms and more communal spaces.

The total project is expected to cost $32.5 million, with construction costs coming out to around $25 million, a spokesperson for FCPS told FFXnow.

Meren said she was most excited about the addition of an outdoor learning space in an interior courtyard of the building.

She hopes to work with the Fairfax County Park Authority to find ways to connect education with the surrounding park.

“Crossfield is unique because it is nestled inside a Fairfax County park,” Meren said.

The school first opened in 1988 and is named after A. Scott Crossfield, an aeronautical pioneer who lived nearby the school.

The project was partly funded by the 2019 School Bond referendum.
