The two-story, 66,895-square-foot middle school building, which includes a 1,000-person-capacity varsity gymnasium and associated locker rooms, was built on the University Schools campus. Roche constructed the existing school building in 2001.
The facility includes 21 classrooms including three full science labs, art room, band room, choir/drama classroom, media center, library with computer stations, warming kitchen and lunchroom with commons area, teacher offices adjacent to the classrooms, special education office and workroom, and main administration office with conference room and workroom. Each classroom has an amplified sound system so students can better hear and understand the teacher and the lesson being taught. The security of the building is maintained with a card access system for exterior doors along with CCTV security cameras.
Construction is similar to the existing University facility, including split-face CMU, slab-on-grade/deck, and a white mechanically fastened EPDM roofing system. Multiple LEED components were incorporated into the building design. Sitework included overlot grading, utilities, parking lot paving, site lighting, landscaping, new middle school practice football field, and relocation of several track and field venues. The parking lot was designed to minimize congestion and maximize parking.
