Designing Facilities for the Middle School (6-8)

by: LaMoine L. Motz, James T. Biehle, and Sandra S. West

A high-quality middle school science program requires science classrooms with safe, well-designed laboratory space, and school designers must consider the distance students will have to travel to these classes. Trying to balance high quality science facilities with smaller, integrated subject subunits (sometimes called pods or houses) creates challenges for facility planners and designers. This chapter provides recommendations that should be considered when designing facilities for the middle school.
