Newport Middle School
The Newport Middle School design creates four wings (one each for sixth, seventh and eighth grade levels and one for vocational education) connected at a central area which houses the media center, gymnasium and administrative areas.
The media center contains a professional library as well as a video production facility. The gym includes a stage designed to accommodate sport activities, school assemblies, and community functions.
Comprising over 110,000 square feet, the building will accommodate 600 students, and the central core is designed to allow for expansion to 800. The 40-acre site is developed with staff, visitor and bus parking areas, a storm water detention system and athletic fields for football, soccer, baseball and softball. An additional 11 acres of the site has been master planned to receive a future elementary school.
