New Clark Avenue Middle School Project

The New Clark Avenue Middle School project is located at 8 Clark Avenue, the site of the existing school. This middle school currently houses 580 students in grades 5-8. The existing school building is comprised of the original 1908 building with a 1926 addition. The existing school will be replaced by a new school that will house 670 students, grades 5-8.

Phase 1, which includes classrooms and a cafeteria, will begin in July 2015 and continue for approximately eighteen (18) months. Phase 2, which includes the gymnasium, performance spaces, and specialty classrooms, will begin in January 2017 and continue for approximately nineteen (19) months.
