Jefferson Middle School, originally built in 1939 will undergo its first major renovation.The building is 109,000 ft and will be modernized to accommodate roughly 540 students from grade 6 through grade 8 at capacity. It currently serves 305 students, but the building layout is not optimally space-efficient.
The modernization scope will include hazardous materials abatement, interior gutting and demolition, and a complete interior renovation of furniture, technology, building systems, corridors, stairwells, elevator, administrative areas, and academic areas; with possible modest enhancements to the exterior of the building. The exterior site/property will also be updated through the modernization.
