The school district’s acquisition of property adjacent to its Elementary and High School enabled ETA to develop a new campus plan of improvements including this new Middle School. The two story scheme creates separation of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades on the ﬁrst ﬂoor from the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades above. Spaces are organized around a central gymnasium creating a compact plan. This results in a low exterior wall to ﬂoor area ratio which, combined with insulated concrete form walls, reduces energy use. Open stairways terminate with large windows to bring daylight into all corridors. Polished concrete ﬂoors were chosen for ease of maintenance. A green roof area above the library serves as an educational tool in sustainability. The project also includes signiﬁcant campus upgrades such as a central security and building management system, new campus access road, sidewalks, fencing, site lighting, re-paving, football ﬁeld bleachers, and six new tennis courts.
