The newest elementary school in FCPS, at 4801 Athens Boonesboro Rd., is planned to open in the fall of 2019 with a capacity of 750 students. The new school will pull students from Garrett Morgan, Athens-Chilesburg, and possibly Squires Elementary. The goals are to rezone 550 to 600 students, accommodate all elementary students within a mile of the school, implement a grandfathering plan to accommodate rising fifth-graders, and address anticipated growth on the East/Southeast side of Lexington.

The new school is planed to be 1 story and 80,000 square feet featuring two academic wings connected by gymnasium, cafeteria, media center, administration.
