Clear Fork Middle School presented a challenge for the design team because of the integration of shared facilities for students in grades 6 to 8 with the present high school. The use of unique color themes distinguishes the middle school environment from that of the high school. A new roof line, as well as separate entrances to the high school and middle school, unify COST PER SQ FT$81.63FEATURED IN2000 Architectural Portfolio complex.
The plan incorporates teams of faculty and students into grade-level communities that adhere to the middle school philosophy. The complex provides classrooms that are rich in technology, telecommunications and video media.
The media center, computer lab and auditorium tie the interior facilities together. Modern science rooms, new art facilities, a new athletic complex, expanded student commons and classrooms designed for special-needs students accentuate the facility.
Separate administrative areas differentiate the middle school program from that of the high school.
