The existing 80 year old facility was obsolete from a functional standpoint and had a laundry list of repairs needed to bring it up to date. The new $23 million Byron Middle School addressed the District's identified educational programming and space challenges. The student population at the old school was 450, but the construction of the new school accomodates 550 comfortably.
The sound of over 1,000 hands clapping
The School exemplifies cooperation between a School District and the Community, with the 550 seat Auditorium shared by the entire School District, as well as the Byron Civic Theatre.
Like peas in a pod
In order to respond to the educational delivery philosophy of the District, the school is subdivided into grade level pods. In addition to General Classrooms and Science Labs, the school also includes:
an 80 piece Band / Orchestra Room
80 seat Choral Room
3 Computer Labs
2 “Project Lead-the-Way” Labs / Shops
a full-service Kitchen
Gymnasium with 2 Middle School sized basketball courts
