Constructed on the same property as the campus it replaced, Austin Middle School was designed to provide a complete educational facility for grades 6th, 7th, and 8th. The 156,538 sq. ft. ‘Prototype’ design has been previously utilized by PSJA ISD and houses standard classrooms, science classrooms, computer labs, a Library, a Cafeteria with a stage, a Practice and Spectator Gym, Music education spaces, sports fields, and support spaces. The green design concepts include natural day lighting, high efficiency lighting, regional materials and native landscaping. An insulated skylight system in the main classroom corridors and a vibrant interior color scheme in the terrazzo floors and painted walls create a positive and spirited school environment.
