Project DescriptionReplacing a 1950’s-era middle school at the same site, Mount Jordan Middle School is a showcase learning facility built for the community. The school exemplifies the Districts’ commitment to education while providing a safe and comfortable learning environment for its students. To support the Canyons School District’s STEAM curriculum, Mount Jordan is specifically designed to foster student engagement and collaboration. Careful collaboration between all team members ensured the District’s vision was met within their given budget.
The building’s interior features innovative teaching spaces called ‘Learning Communities.’ Learning communities consist of classrooms surrounding a collaboration center. The collaboration center supports multi-group, active, and project-based learning activities. In addition, small break-out rooms and ‘think tanks’ give a place for quiet individual learning or small group discussion. This variety of space, size, and function empowers educators to engage with their students. In total, the school has six learning communities defined with vibrant colors, modular furniture arrangements, an abundance of natural light, and stunning views of the Wasatch Front Mountains.
