Greenacres Middle School—
Central Valley School District
Spokane Valley, WA
A key element of work for this 90,722 square foot addition and modernization involved revising the site to accommodate a separate parent drop-off zone from bus traffic and providing a new exterior student area south of the building.
A new student commons was constructed adjacent to student arrival points, allowing for secure monitoring by administration staff. Stucco and glass are used to emphasize the entrance and to provide a new identity for the school. The lobby provides for controlled access during the day and a separate public entry for after-hours events in the gymnasium.
Classrooms are organized into clusters to facilitate team teaching of core subjects. Specialized classrooms are located in the center of the building to house Computer Technology, ScanTech, Arts, Family Science, Woodworking, Band, Music and Media. Located in the Spokane Valley, the facility is now poised to serve many future generations of Central Valley School District students.
