Everett Meredith Middle School
Appoquinimink School District
The new Everett Meredith Middle School replaced an aging middle school in the Appoquinimink School District. The new school houses 1,000 students in grades 6 through 8. The 2-story building includes 3 academic pods, a related arts pod, a cafeteria/kitchen for serving 350 students, a 500-seat auditorium, a 400-seat gymnasium, and assorted support spaces. The design includes:
A large learning stair in the cafeteria that can be used for instruction, presentation, or student collaboration space.
A modern auditorium with a catwalk system and motorized rigging.
A central atrium that connects the first and second floors of the academic wing with the media center and the cafeteria/learning stair.
