After serving the county for 90 years, Bedford County Schools sought to replace their existing middle school with new a facility that featured 21st century learning spaces. A flexible learning lab creates a space for students to conduct small group meetings and study sessions. Ample glazing allows passive teacher supervision of students occupying the flexible learning lab. Adjacent to the flexible learning lab is the multi-media lab where students produce televised school news and explore broadcast journalism. A science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) suite was designed for new programming opportunities. The suite includes a shop with wood-working equipment, a planning classroom, and a maker space with 3D printers.
