Chastain Middle School

Jackson, MS

Project Description

Program: Major additions to an existing school for a self-contained sixth grade. The focus is on a pure middle school utilizing team teaching and school resources.

Solution: A building image that respects the existing school while creating a new sense of place for sixth graders. The major emphasis is on a shared central resource public space for team projects and a semi-public reading/lecture area.  All classrooms have easy access and are encouraged to work as a “team.”
