Description: This projectprovides a new middle school facility for the Districtís 7th and 8th grade student population.Originally intended to support 1,500 students, the school will, as designed, accommodate 1,700 students.This was accomplished during the programming phase by judicious application of TEA facility standards and utilizing a 1:28 teacher/student ratio, in combination with a hybrid block schedule.


The school is oftwo story design, stair-stepping down a hillside site. The 7th grades is housed on the lower level, while the 8th grade shares the upper (main) level with the common elements. This design solution minimizes the impact of the site and optimizes student circulation within the building.The school has proven remarkably easy to administer, staff and secure, all primary District objectives.†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
