This one-story middle school was designed for an enrollment of 750 students. JRA worked closely with Fayette County Public Schools staff to create a new building upon which future middle school projects could be modeled. The school has the latest in technology capabilities and is designed to be a low maintenance facility with its sloped metal roof, brick exterior, and internal mechanical catwalk system. A geothermal HVAC system was also designed into the project to reduce the building’s life-cycle costs. The school is also designed so that the gymnasium, cafeteria and library can be separated from the rest of the school for after-hours community functions. The building contains classrooms, a special education classroom, science classrooms, resource classrooms, art and music instructional areas, computer labs, technology education spaces, family and consumer science instructional spaces, administrative offices, library media center, kitchen, cafeteria, and a gymnasium with attached locker and shower areas.
