Grading equipment has been delivered to the site of the new Clover Middle School site off of Barrett Road and Highway 55. We will all soon see work begin on the 120-acre site that will provide a state-of-the-art campus for middle school students on the Western half of our district. The latest architectural rendering of the new CMS is shown below. At first glance you may think you're seeing a rendering of Oakridge Middle School. In actuality, the new CMS was designed using similar plans that were used for Oakridge when it opened in 2008. For those of you who have visited OMS, you will see several noticeable modifications in the design. First, the interior ceiling height has been reduced which will have a significant impact on energy efficiency. Another noticeable change is the location of the gym and the cafeteria, which will be opposite from Oakridge.
We look forward to providing additional updates and photographs of the site work as the project moves forward.
