Community Connections from the Ground Up

Byron Middle School

A new facility to meet 21st century needs

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 accommodates 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.

Technology enabled Science Lab

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
  • a library
  • 3 Computer Labs
  • 2 “Project Lead-the-Way” Labs / Shops
  • a full-service Kitchen
  • Locker Rooms
  • Gymnasium with 2 Middle School sized basketball courts
  • Community Room
  • a Drama Classroom
