Currently, Fernbank students attend classes at the Avondale Middle
School where they will remain for 18-24 months. However, the school
board earlier projected that construction would be underway by now.
While parents naturally would like their children back in the
neighborhood as soon as possible, the board of education’s plans have
long-term environmental and aesthetic ramifications for the community.
For this reason, many community members would like the school board to
consider alternatives that work with the prototype. They hope to
initiate a constructive dialogue to address concerns, assisting the
school board and designers in developing creative concepts that maintain
the prototype while helping to reduce construction time and costs.
