Garnet-Patterson Middle School

Garnet-Patterson Middle School at 2001 10th Street NW (between U and V) was built in 1929, replacing a prior school building on this site from 1880. It closed in 2008, and then reopened as the Shaw Middle School at Garnet-Patterson. For a while, it looked like the Shaw Middle School would thrive under principal Brian Betts, but he was murdered in 2010 and the school failed to thrive and closed in 2013. There are no current plans for the building.
Pearl Bailey and Marvin Gaye went to Garnet-Patterson.
