Menifee Union School District has broken ground on a reconstruction project for Menifee Valley Middle School. The $38 mil, 71.3k sf project, which will help transition the campus to a magnet school focused on visual and performing arts, includes the addition of two new classroom buildings, restorations to the Visual and Performing Arts Center, construction of an open-concept library and renovations to existing locker rooms.

Located in Riverside County, roughly 15 miles north of Temecula, the new campus is expected to be completed in spring 2021.The general contractor for the project is C.W. Driver Companies. BakerNowicki Design Studio is overseeing the design aspect of the project.

Menifee Valley Middle School’s renovation includes the reconstruction of temporary portables into new, permanent classrooms and lab spaces that create a centralized academic courtyard and cohesive community. Other key modifications include new music and choir space as well as a renovated stage in the Visual and Performing Arts Center, introduction of outdoor learning areas, large classroom windows to allow for natural light, and active learning spaces optimized for use in the arts, music and sciences known as Flex Labs. The campus will also feature a clean and contemporary façade that is energy efficient and comfortable for students and staff.

As part of the unique design, Menifee Valley Middle School’s new library will include a flexible plan configuration, collaboration spaces to facilitate group work and soft seating areas for students seeking a quiet, comfortable place to study. On the athletic front, renovations to existing locker rooms will include ADA upgrades, AV improvements and a washer/dryer addition.

“Our design included concepts incorporated from multiple meetings with teachers, students and our Menifee Valley Middle School community, while also incorporating aspects critical to an arts-focused middle school, said Menifee Union School District Superintendent, Steve Kennedy. “We leaned heavily on research-based lighting design throughout the project that reflects the nexus between the maximized use of natural light and increased student academic performance throughout the new campus.”

In an effort to increase transparency with the local community, the district and project team are utilizing an inclusive process that closely involves community members, administration, staff, students and parents in the renovation. The reconstruction of Menifee Valley Middle School is a collective effort and the fingerprints of everyone involved will be seen throughout the design.

The school is conveniently located minutes from the 15 freeway and just five miles from Interstate 215, providing easy access for parents commuting to and from work and proximity to the local Paloma Valley Community Library.
