The New Hudson Middle School
The new Middle School is reoriented on the central campus with new traffic patterns to separate cars and buses. Walk and bike paths will connect the campus from North Oviatt Street to North Hayden Parkway, providing safe routes for students and the community. Preparing students to be collaborative, creative thinkers requires their educational spaces and activities to be collaborative and creative. The new Hudson Middle School has been intentionally designed with this focus.
The planning and design process for the new school brought together input from staff, students, and the community, along with research on school design and the future of learning.
The new spaces are open, bright, flexible, engaging, and centered on meaningful, inspiring learning for our students. With extended learning areas that link middle school communities together, there is open space for students to explore, share, and grow together.
Each aspect of the new building has been designed with the future in mind, to continue to inspire students to make a difference in the world.
Lavelli Field will remain an integral part of the Central Campus as an athletic facility. The Master Facility Plan includes improving the field and tearing down the existing visitor stands, which are no longer needed for spectators.
The Auto Tech building will be torn down. A new structure will be appropriately located behind the High School near our maintenance facilities.
