The students at Los Alamos High School will soon have a revamped campus and if all goes well financially, the students at the middle school can look forward to new digs, as well.
During Tuesday night’s school board meeting at Pajarito Cliffs, Superintendent Gene Schmidt said the middle school education staff has been busy thinking about what the middle school could look like. Though these are only concepts at this point, Schmidt is confident that administration will soon agree on one of the options.
“We’re leaning toward option one,” Schmidt said.
Option one would include tearing down the 100 and 200 wings and adding a new gymnasium that would include locker rooms. This option would remove 52,648 gross square feet and add 80,457 GSF. It would also house the sixth grade in the 500 wing, which is currently used as classroom space.
Much like the current construction at the high school, students at the middle school would go to class in portable buildings during construction.
“The current middle school administrative
offices would be the first site of construction,” Schmidt said, “So admin would be displaced in the first phase.”
Schmidt said that option one would cost slightly more than $22 million.
