Stanley Middle School
The new replacement middle school is located on the existing Stanley Middle School Campus. The school is designed for 800 students with the potential to expand to 1,000 for future growth. The main spine of the building is the organizing element that links the classroom wings with the core function spaces located in the center. The spine itself will be a tall volume of space allowing natural, diffused light into the corridor. The media center and cafeteria are located at the center of the school.
The floor plan provides separation of grades by each grade having dedicated hallways and independent restrooms. The 6th grade is on the main level while 7th and 8th grades are on the second level. Ideal sight lines provide for building security control. The gymnasium can function independently from the main building for after-hour and community events. Once the new school is complete, operations will be transferred to the new school and the existing school will be demolished. New athletic fields shall then be developed where the existing school previously stood.
