The $90 million project will include a dedicated science lab and outdoor learning spaces.

The Gilroy (Calif.) district is carrying out a $90 million renovation of South Valley Middle School in Gilroy.

The Gilroy Dispatch reports that the project, funded by a 2016  bond package, will be similar to the recently completed Brownell Middle School modernization, according to school officials.

The campus will have six classroom pods, one of which will be designed specifically as a science lab, in addition to integrated outdoor learning spaces, a new administration building, media center, kitchen and more.

The main entrance to the school will be shifted from the existing location and will have a designated 450-foot-long drop off area and more than 100 parking spaces.

The quad will be designed in the shape of a tiger’s paw, paying homage to the school’s mascot.

Construction is expected to wrap up in late 2023.

Aedis Architects is the design firm, and Flint Builders is the contractor.
