Owner: St. Mary Catholic Schools (formerly Twin City Catholic Educational System TCCES) Size: 59,000 SF Completion: September 2015 Architect / Engineer: McMahon Group
To support the school’s shift to a more technology-based, collaborative approach, the new 59,000 square-foot St. Mary Catholic Middle School is equipped with 21st-century learning amenities.
Classrooms are arranged in grade-level pods or houses, each containing 3 or 4 large core classrooms, with adjacent flexible, collaborative learning areas, group study/project rooms, and student lockers.
Smaller comfortable spaces for reading or studying individually or in a group are located throughout the building.
The facility has the flexibility to integrate current and long-term technology trends.
All core classrooms are positioned to have access to natural light.
Science and art classrooms are strategically located to take advantage of views of and proximity to the two-acre outdoor learning environment.
The Interactive Media Center (IMC) has traditional areas for books and reading, as well as a media area and green screen where students learn to use audio-visual equipment for project-based learning.
