Owner: Ames Community School District

Completion: January 2006
Architect / Engineer: DLR Group

Project Description:

Ames Middle School provides expanded exploratory learning opportunities in energizing spaces. The new 246,000 square-foot school fulfills the district’s need to move to a grade 6-8 middle school program from a previous 7-8 configuration.

The “V-wing” footprint creates distinct grade level areas, with the administrative area at the center of the “V” to provide clear visibility of students. The two-level academic wings provide natural daylight into every classroom, and the nearby creek and wooded areas provide beautiful views from the building and outdoor learning spaces.
