This project was the construction of a new 126,000 sf 6-8 Fremont Middle School. The classroom wing is a 3-story structure with attached gym, music rooms, and commons area. The building was designed with pod-style classrooms, which include walls that fold and slide to the side to connect classrooms to other spaces. The new building focuses on state-of-the-art technology.
The media center has a multi-media production lab where students can produce a daily news broadcast in the FMS Video Club to be shown throughout all classrooms. In addition, students are able to use the media center’s collection of 24 iPads in the center, in classrooms, or they may sign them out for use in the cyber café. Also located on the first floor is an engineering technology wing. This wing is divided into three areas: CAD (Computer Aided Design), Production Lab, and Modular Technology Lab.
The location of the new middle school, which was built next to the high school, allows for easy access between the two buildings, making it possible to share technological resources between the two schools.
