The new Dundalk and Sollers Point High Schools is the largest single project ever undertaken by the Baltimore County Public School system at a size of 349,365-SF with the capacity of 1,857 students and at a cost of $80 million.

A unique combination of two types of high schools—one comprehensive (Dundalk) and one technical (Sollers Point)—design of the new complex focused on giving each school its own identity, while capitalizing on shared spaces to maximize efficiency.  A multi-story central atrium houses the shared media center and forms the heart of the building.  Daylight shines down this central core through clerestories and provides a visual connector along virtually the entire length of the building enhancing wayfinding, and making it easier to navigate for incoming freshman and visitors.  Exhibits located in the lobby and imagery that flows through the cafeteria and corridors illustrate the rich history of the Dundalk and Sollers Point’s Turner Station neighborhoods, allowing the complex to engage the community.

“We’re really excited that the school is now going to bring the community into the schoolhouse.  This will be a centerpiece for the community.  We think that it will revitalize Dundalk, help make Dundalk a premier place to live and people will want to come and live in this community.” Tom Shouldice, Dundalk High School Principal
