The school is just off of Piney Branch Road two blocks North of MD 410 (East-West Hwy - Philadelphia Ave).
From I-495: Take Exit 28B, MD 650 (New Hampshire Ave) South.
At the bottom of the long hill (5th traffic light), turn right onto Piney Branch Rd. Cross University Blvd, Flower Ave, Sligo Ave, and
Ritchie Ave. Look for the large brick school on your left
in about 1000 ft.
Metro: A walk of 8/10 of a mile (about 12 minutes walking) from the Takoma station on the Red Line, or take the Route 14 Ride-On bus from the Takoma Metro station to the school.
Walking Directions from the Metro: Exit the Metro and bear left toward the kiss and ride lot. Walk through the kiss and ride lot (or the sidewalk between the busses and kiss-and-ride lot) until you come to the street, which is Eastern Avenue. Turn left on Eastern Avenue and walk one block. You will need to cross Eastern Avenue. Turn right at the next street, which is Holly Avenue. Walk about one-half mile down Holly Avenue. (After you cross Philadelphia Avenue, it climbs a hill and passes the Takoma Park Elementary School (not the school you're looking for), but in two more blocks, Holly Avenue ends at Grant Avenue. Turn left on Grant Avenue and walk one block. You will a see a big school on your right, and this is the Takoma Park Middle School, which IS the school you want. Walk through the parking lot and up to the main entrance. Welcome!
Handicapped Access: The building is fully accessible. Though an elevator is available, we generally use only the ground floor. Fully accessible toilet facilities.
Smoking is prohibited, not merely in the school building, but anywhere on school property. Smokers will need to go all the way out to the street in order to light up. (Maryland State Law).
