CHINOOK TRAIL MIDDLE SCHOOL
ACADEMY DISTRICT 20
Adding to the existing Chinook Trail Elementary School campus, this new middle school involved close collaboration with the existing school to create a complete K-8 campus.
Serving 1,000 students, the 125-000-SF school incorporates high-performance classrooms as well as a maker space, technology labs, flexible learning spaces, and athletic facilities, including football and softball. The design also includes the expansion of the elementary school kitchen into a full-base kitchen. Designed according to WELL principles, the school includes biophilic design strategies, sustainable and energy-efficient elements, and construction standards that work together to ensure health learning environments, and offer long-term energy savings for the client. The school was designed in collaboration with RTA Architects.
