Iredell County, specifically Statesville, NC, has seen a slow and steady growth in their population over the years. The need for a new middle school was desperately needed, and in 2014 the new School Bond was approved by voters.
The Statesville Middle School is in need of extensive renovations with the majority of the buildings from the 1960s/1970s and Northview IB will move in once the renovations are complete to allow an additional 200-250 students. So these two projects are a win-win for Iredell-Statesville Schools.
Currently, the Statesville Middle School is not conducive to the middle school student population. Students’ classrooms are on different floors, and some have to walk outside during class transitions in rain, ice, and snow; this poses supervision and safety issues. Each student has laptops; however, the current wiring is not up to standards of 21st century learning.
The new, Third Creek Middle School will solve a lot of these issues that are at the current middle school. New Atlantic is constructing the new school on the campus of the Third Creek Elementary School. The capacity that is planned is for 600-650 with an 800 expandable capacity in the future.

New Atlantic was honored to be a part of the groundbreaking, and enjoyed seeing the excitement of the 4th graders who will attend this new school. Special guest were Congressman Tedd Budd and the Statesville Mayor, Costi Kutteh, who high-fived each student after his speech.
Iredell County, specifically Mooresville, NC, has seen a rapid growth in their population with its strong connection in the Charlotte-Metro area.
Currently, students attend the Brawly Middle School that serves over 700 students, and has an age range from the 1960s to the 2000s. The renovations and additions have allowed the capacity to increase to a 997 capacity. Mt. Mourne IB has a capacity of 560 students and has a 150 student waitlist. To solve these issues the current middle school will go through minor renovations, and current students at Brawly Middle School will move into the new, Woodland Heights Middle School.

New Atlantic was honored to be a part of the dedication ceremony of the AmeriCorps House in Winston-Salem, NC. Our volunteer team helped with the renovations, and was excited to see the end result of community’s hard work and dedication. We played a small part in the vision Habitat Forsyth had for this home, and it turned into a wonderful place for the AmeriCorps volunteers.
