Christa McAuliffe Middle School, originally built in 1990, required a significant addition and renovation expanding its student capacity from 900 to 1,200. Given the school district’s focus on campus security, there was a desire to minimize exterior wall windows. The design team elected to provide continuous, bands of clerestory windows above major corridors which provided an abundance of day lighting to the interior of the building. To further enhance the new learning environments, new, bright colors and durable finishes were selected for the walls and floors. These finishes were also carried into the existing building. Our team provided a cost-effective and enhanced academic center.
