New Construction, Middle School
This school is designed to offer an integrated, “hands-on” learning environment for 600 students in grades 6 through 8. Six home base units of 100 students each are organized around a built “park” of shared spaces, objects and resources.
Cuningham Group’s design includes individual work stations organized on two levels around a central gathering/performance space that celebrates student achievements. Contained in the central “heart” of this school are shared resources which include: performance, dining, administration, media resource, group areas, music and physical activity.
