The new Stone Mountain Middle School is composed of 80 classrooms and has a capacity of 1,300 students. Organized around a central courtyard and connecting bridge, the school is made up of a three-story classroom wing, a gymnasium, a full cafeteria, a media center and a range of other specialized state-of-the-art classrooms for the arts and sciences. The site development features tennis courts, ball fields and other areas for track and field. A central courtyard is a nice feature for outdoor gathering which is anchored by a fully conditioned pedestrian bridge that completes the school’s circular circulation. For safety and convenience, separate drop-off areas have been designed for buses and cars.
