While colors and other finishing details remain in the works, artist renderings of the new Mount Jordan Middle School have been made available for public view. The renderings were created by MHTN Architects, the architectural firm selected by the Board of Education to design the school following a competitive bid process. Hogan and Associates Construction will oversee the building’s construction.
The new Mount Jordan Middle is made possible by a $250 million bond approved by voters in 2010. The new school will have a state-of-the-art auditorium; a 180-seat lecture hall; hallways and classrooms filled with natural light; an expanded cafeteria and spacious commons area; a gymnasium with two full courts, 14 basketball hoops, large locker rooms, fitness rooms dedicated to dance and strength training, and an elevated indoor running track with a special surface for running; and a performing arts suite for choir and band practices.
Students and staff temporarily have relocated to the former Crescent View Middle, 11150 S. 300 East, while their new school is under construction. The new school is scheduled to open in fall 2015.
