In response to the ambitious project-based curriculum, the new Dixon Middle School will provide a technology rich environment and foster a flexible learning experience for its 950 students. Beyond the classroom, there are learning spaces at every turn and in a variety of scales to support two-person discussions, small groups, lectures, and more. A day-lit central commons serves as the hub of interactive learning with a sophisticated and stimulating atmosphere. The project represents Smith Sinnett Architecture’s commitment to supporting innovative educational methods through meaningful, intentional design, as well as extending consideration to owner needs through creative phasing and scheduling solutions.

Sustainable features include: reduced curb and gutter for less invasive storm water management and cost savings, onsite storm water management through the use of constructed wetlands, brick and block construction for longevity, daylight design and optimal building orientation, LED light fixtures, ducted air returns for better efficiency and less above-ceiling sound transfer.
