Langston High School Continuation/Langston-Brown Community Center
Priginally built in the 1920s as the first African-American elementary school in Arlington. The facility houses a High School Continuation program, a senior day care facility and a head start program. Community members wanted the redeveloped site to be a “gateway” project, bringing identity to their community.
When County leaders decided to replace the existing building with a larger facility, they also had a vision that its replacement combined design and materials to greatly increase energy and resource efficiency, and indeed, set a new standard for future County facilities. A goal was established to achieve a Silver rating from the USGBC’s (US Green Building Council) LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program.
