Strategically located on two sites near growth areas of the community, these new 123,000 sq. ft., two-story intermediate schools have identical footprints to provide an equal community presence but different color schemes to differentiate the schools both inside and out. The layout for both schools includes a two-station gym, locker and multi-purpose rooms, art, science, special education, cafeteria, health, choral, orchestra, band rooms, combined technical education and computer lab as well as a library and computer lab. Each school has capacity for 800 students, for grades 5 through 8. A house concept design provides individual classroom areas for each grade level.
