Mount Jordan Demolition Well Underway!

The Mount Jordan Middle School demolition is moving along quickly. The former school is now just a pile of rubble.

The new Mount Jordan Middle is being made possible by a $250 million, tax-rate-neutral bond approved by Canyons voters in 2010. The new school will be approximately 200,000 square feet and built to emphasize such areas as science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). 

Current plans also call for, among other amenities, a gymnasium with an elevated running track, fitness rooms, a lecture hall, a performing arts suite, a spacious commons area and cafeteria, an 180-seat lecture hall, and an abundance of natural light in the hallways and classrooms. The school also will be wired for the high-tech demands of a 21st century education.   

The new Sandy middle school, scheduled for completion in fall 2015, will be the sixth rebuilt or new school Canyons District has completed since 2009, when CSD became the first new school district to be created in Utah in 100 years. 

While the new school is being built, Mount Jordan students and teachers are being housed at the old Crescent View Middle, 11150 S. 300 East.
