WESTRIDGE MIDDLE SCHOOL Orlando, FL Westridge Middle School was specifically designed to address the student performance decline associated with the “transition” into middle schools. Based on research from Ford Foundation and John Hopkins University, middle school facility design can help to reduce the “transition trauma.” The school is designed around “Nested Learning Communities” (NLCs) which foster a special sense of safety to the new entering class and smooth the transition disruption to student performance.

BOCA RATON MIDDLE SCHOOL Boca Raton, FL Boca Raton Middle School is a comprehensive phased replacement of the existing school originally built in the 1950s. The school design is composed of a twostory classroom building, which contains all classrooms, labs and resource rooms arranged in “houses.” Each “house” is arranged to service a grade level population (6th, 7th, and 8th grade) and contains its own mini-administration suite. The assembly spaces and fine arts area are located in an adjacent building across a landscaped courtyard, which serves as a central organizing space from which administration can supervise all student movement and oversee the main access points of the school using minimal staff.

PARKWAY MIDDLE SCHOOL Fort Lauderdale, FL The Parkway Middle School comprehensive replacement project is a concurrent phased replacement on a highly-restricted urban site shared with an elementary school. The complex project is being approached in three phases to maintain ongoing operations of the school facility while construction of the new facility takes place.

An existing ESE classroom building is also being modified into a large covered shelter at the parent drop-off loop. The master plan provides for a highly secure school facility organized around a new central DaVinci Courtyard with an outdoor beamed amphitheater for performances.

TRADEWINDS MIDDLE SCHOOL Lake Worth, FL The state-of-the-art prototype is a two-building design. The first building houses classrooms, administrative offices, and the media center. The second “assembly” building houses the gym, locker rooms, cafetorium, kitchen, stage, fine arts facilities and music rooms. The two components are sited around a central organizing space from which administration can supervise all student movement and oversee the main access point of the school using minimal staff. Designed in accordance with the recently developed “House Concept”, students are grouped into separate “houses” according to grade groupings or curriculum academies. Each house has a separate administrative suite with its own assistant principal, thereby increasing supervision and monitoring. Student Stations: 1,500 Size: 195,643 SF

L.C. SWAIN MIDDLE SCHOOL Greenacres, FL LC Swain Middle School is a middle school designed for quick construction through the use of a tilt wall construction system and simple geometry. The compact design is composed of a two-story classroom building and an assembly building located across a landscaped courtyard, which serves as a central organizing space for the school. The assembly building can easily be used for after-hour school or community functions without opening the entire school to the public. This flexibility facilitated an inter-local agreement for the school’s ball fields, track and gymnasium to be used by the public after school hours while all classroom spaces remain secure.

MILLENNIUM MIDDLE SCHOOL Tamarac, FL While the typical campus size for a South Florida elementary school is 15 acres and that of a middle school is 20, Zyscovich developed a plan to fit both on one 21-acre site, including playfields and amenities. This 1,500-student station prototype middle school is a twocomponent building. The first component houses classrooms, administrative offices, media centers, and classrooms for science and vocational studies. The second “assembly” component houses the gym, locker rooms, cafetorium, kitchen, stage, fine arts facilities and music rooms. The two components are sited around a central organizing space from which administration can supervise all student movement and oversee the main access point of the school using minimal staff.
