The property was once the original location of Tilden Middle School. The school relocated to former Charles W. Woodward High School in 1991 and the original Tilden location became the middle school holding site for Montgomery County Public Schools. Rock Terrace School, a special education school is currently located at 390 Martins Lane, Rockville, Maryland.

The purpose of the project is to collocate Tilden Middle School and Rock Terrace School to provide both schools with an up-to-date facility while increasing the capacity of Tilden Middle School to accommodate projected student enrollment. Currently, each school is at different locations and the site of the new school is utilized as a holding center for middle schools.

The proposed Tilden Middle School will meet the requirements of the educational specifi cations for a new middle school by providing fifty-nine (59) teaching spaces for grades six through eight when completed in August 2020. The current student enrollment at Tilden Middle School is 850 and is projected to be approximately 1,094 by the 2020–2021 school year. The new school facility will increase the capacity of the school from the current 939 seats to approximately 1,215 seats with a core capacity for 1,500 students.

The proposed Rock Terrace School will meet the requirements of the educational specifi cations for a new special education school by providing eighteen (18) teaching spaces for middle, upper and high school aged students when completed in August 2020. The current student enrollment at Rock Terrace School is 87. The new school facility will accommodate the county’s special needs population with a capacity for approximately 120 students.
