Press release from Anne Arundel County Public Schools

The Board of Education is accepting public comment on Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Bedell’s recommendations for the county’s newest high school and newest elementary school, both of which are set to open in August.

Naming committees for the schools each forwarded a single name to Dr. Bedell for consideration and he formally recommended those names at the Board’s December 20, 2023, meeting.

The recommendations are:

  • Severn Run High School for the facility being built off Interstate 97 in Severn on the site of the former Papa John’s farm
  • Two Rivers Elementary School for the facility being built on Conway Road in Odenton.
