Parkland Middle School was built in 1963. An addition to the 109,481 square foot facility was constructed in 1966, adding 32,277 square feet. Another addition/modernization project in 2007 added 9,411 square feet to the school.
The purpose of this project was to increase the capacity of the existing Parkland Middle School and provide program spaces for Grades 6–8 that meet the requirements of the educational specifications. The school remained operational during construction of the three small additions:
|Completion Date:||August 2023 (building), October 2023 (site)|
|Site Size:||9.19 acres|
|Building Size:||151,169 square feet (existing); 27,510 square feet (new)|
|Enrollment Projections:||2023-2024: 1,094|
|Project Manager:||Chris Deraleau, 240-740-7726|
The purpose of this project is to increase the capacity of the existing Parkland Middle School and provide program spaces for Grades 6–8 that meet the requirements of the educational specifications. The work includes three small additions. The addition on the front north side of the building will increase the size of the cafeteria to accommodate the increased core capacity of the school. An addition on the west side of the building, adjacent to the adjoining park property, will include an auxiliary gymnasium, health classroom, multipurpose technology laboratories, and general classrooms. An addition to the east, adjacent to the existing school bus drop-off/pick-up area will include science laboratories and a general classroom. Parkland Middle School will remain operational during construction of the new additions. The project will provide a cost-effective, energy efficient, and safe facility to meet the needs of the school. The additions will be in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and will provide the required teaching spaces and support spaces for the school programs.
