Eastern Shore Schools | November 19, 2021

We recently highlighted some of our exciting private school educational projects in the Baltimore region.  Today we are looking across the Chesapeake Bay to highlight two recent public schools – the North Dorchester High School and the Somerset County Technical High School (aka JM Tawes). 


MC worked alongside Hord, Coplan & Macht and Gipe Associates to design the replacement North Dorchester High School in Hurlock, MD. This 117,150sf, 2-story facility opened in 2019 and is nestled together with the adjacent middle school and a community athletic and recreation complex.  Large windows in the exterior walls allow ample natural light into the building and helped this project earn a LEED silver rating.


The Somerset County Technical High School (JM Tawes) opened in 2019 and is certified LEED gold.  MC teamed with Becker Morgan Group & Gipe Associates to design this 103,000sf school featuring exposed structural framing and mechanical systems that serve as teaching aids for the various trade programs.  This project has won several awards such as ENR Regional Best Project, AIA Maryland Merit Award, and an AIA Chesapeake Bay Award!
