Salk Middle School Modernization
Spokane Public Schools
Spokane, Washington
The design of the new Salk Middle School emphasizes sensitivity and respect for the middle school student and the surrounding residential neighborhoods. Striving to strike the appropriate balance between new or modernized elementary schools and high schools recently completed within the school district, scale and flexibility are primary design principles to ensure the school remains relevant for evolving educational delivery for many decades. Replacing the original 1961 school, the new middle school will be constructed in multiple phases to allow the existing school to remain in operation. With the potential for Salk to become a prototype for future middle schools within Spokane Public Schools, adaptability is a crucial aspect of the design.
