    William W. Hall Elementary School opened its doors as a public school in August 2005.  Newly erected, William Hall's students come from the Seat Pleasant, Capitol Heights, Coral Hill, and Carmody Hill/Peppermill communities.  As a result of the county wide re-boundary, students from various existing elementary schools were transferred to William Hall.  Among these schools were Benjamin Foulois, Bradbury Heights, Capitol Heights, Concord, Doswell Brooks, Francis Scott Key, John Eager Howard, and Lyndon Hill which closed it's doors in June 2005. 

    Today, William W. Wall Elementary is the New William Hall Academy, serving students in grades PreK-8th.  With the new name and status, William Hall Academy is considered a middle school within PGCPS.

    In partnership with Prince George's County Parks and Planning Commission, William W. Hall will share some of its space with the Oakcrest Community Center.  Among the shared space is the library media center, the science and art rooms, the multipurpose room, and the gymnasium.
