McCownGordon was selected as the construction manager to build Olathe School District’s tenth middle school. The school design was adapted from Olathe’s most recently completed middle school project, which will create a recognizable and functional layout for students and staff.
The building will provide each grade level its own academic classrooms, with shared common areas of athletics and natatorium, fine arts and special programs, cafeteria, collaboration/common areas, storm shelter and administrative areas. An added 21st-century learning tool features a “learning stair” that serves as a stairway, but doubles as a learning area for collaboration. New outdoor athletic fields including track and field amenities are in the plans for the exterior work.
The new middle school is planned for completion in late 2017.
