Pacific Crest Middle School is a new middle school part of Bend La Pine’s 2013 bond projects.
The project consisted of the construction of a new 121,000 sf, 2-story middle school housing approximately 800 students.
The interior learning spaces includes six communities, each with three learning studios (classrooms). Each community has a science lab, collaboration space, and smaller area for quiet studies. Finishes include CMU, sheet metal siding and roofing in earth tones, with the mass of the building being broken up by multiple roof forms. Large exterior windows and clerestories were designed to provide natural lighting to interior spaces, as well as provide a connection from the building’s interior to exterior learning areas.
