MIDDLE SCHOOL EAST RENOVATIONS

Expansion of Middle School East (MSE) is in progress and will be completed in the fall of 2023. MSE, which is the district’s smallest middle school and is located in the area of highest projected growth, will increase by 25,000 square feet with space for an additional 175 students.

THE PLANS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL EAST INCLUDE

  • 10 new classrooms spaces         
  • Flexible small group spaces
  • Expanded cafeteria seating
  • Enhanced related arts classrooms
  • Increased special education spaces

Additions and renovations to Middle Schools South and West have been deferred due to market and labor conditions. These plans will be revisited after the final costs for other Phase Two projects are solidified in the spring of 2023.
