Beulah Middle School
This new 204,200 SF middle school is a place for students to learn in a modern environment, a place that brings the school and community together. It will serve approximately 1,200 students with core curriculum courses and a wide range of vocational academies. The District wanted separate wings for each grade level, with each wing having access to all of the academies and support areas. The plan developed creates usable exterior courtyards for outdoor classes and dining, and allows for future expansion if needed. Sustainable features include extensive daylighting, exterior sun shading, and insulated concrete form construction.
The public area of the school was designed to reinforce the sense of connection with the community, with a welcoming front presence and parking within easy distance of the track and field and gym, which can be used by everyone. The private area of the school has no street frontage and provides a secure environment where students can walk freely from each wing of the school.
