August 19th, 2008 categories: Montgomery, Schools

I drove down Ray Thorington road this morning, and saw some real earth moving at the site of east Montgomery’s newest school, Johnnie R. Carr Middle School

There’s been hope that a new middle school would be built in east Montgomery for some time now, so I thought I’d share some pics so you can see that it really is happening!

 Carr Middle School will be right beside Blount Elementary School on Ray Thorington Road. 

 According to this article in the Montgomery Advertiser, the 119,000-square-foot school will cost about $22 million, and will serve 800 stu­dents.  It is scheduled to open in August of 2009.  Carr is named after civil rights activist, Johnnie R. Carr, who was a part of the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1954.
