John Glenn Middle School
John Glenn Middle School was designed to accommodate over 1,250 students in grades 6-8. The building is a mix of additions and renovations, designed to foster academic exploration with a commons that supports all types of classroom instruction. The building incorporates gender-neutral design strategies, with an emphasis on reducing bullying and student movement, as well as healthy environmental/system designs.
The project goals include the creation of learning environments to encourage every student to find their interest and learning style. The space provides student support areas and systems that reduce opportunities for bullying, while utilizing the Well Building Standard to prioritize system design and cost management practices. Energy consumption was also dramatically reduced.
