New Middle School Campus

Windsor Unified School District
Windsor, Calif.

  • Completion Date: September 1997
  • Square Footage: 75,200 (New Construction)
  • Final Construction Cost: $14.4M

Windsor Middle School's new campus design supports a restructured curriculum that provides four independent classroom clusters at the heart of the school. These clusters, designed to foster team and cooperative teaching, include science and art labs, teacher workrooms and other support facilities that allow them to operate as smaller “schools within a school”, focusing on one subject or grade level, or promoting interdisciplinary studies.

The campus has two zones: The “active” zone accommodates extensive community use, and includes the gymnasium, multi-use building, outdoor courts and an outdoor theater, while the “academic zone”, with its classroom clusters and library/media center, is focused on quieter pursuits. 

Highly functional spaces, ample daylight and durable materials are some of the guiding principals in the design of all the buildings.
