New Middle School
Aledo’s new middle school is a reflection of the district’s learner-centered vision; the design encourages engagement, inspiration, inclusivity and excitement. As part of the planning process, the team created comprehensive educational specifications for district middle schools.
The design encompasses the spirit of Aledo and its community aesthetic by weaving calming, natural design elements with purposeful nods to the future of education and educational ideology. The library is the heart of the school, and collaboration spaces are easily accessible within grade-level neighborhoods. The sixth-grade neighborhood is separate, providing a dedicated space for younger students as they transition to middle school learning. Security and outdoor connection were other key design priorities.
