Over the past seven years, Seven Hills has invested nearly $40 million to enhance school facilities on our two campuses. We are excited to announce our next project, which is the renovation and expansion of our Middle School building.
Reimagining our middle school facility to match the excellence of the program
The sixth, seventh, and eighth grades involve exciting transitions for young people. They’re becoming aware of their emerging individuality, firming up their beliefs, and more deeply developing their character. And, as these students are making this amazing evolution, the Seven Hills Middle School teaching team has their backs.
A Community Within a Community
Guided by our educational philosophy that Middle Schoolers thrive best in environments designed just for them, our sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders learn and grow in dedicated spaces we call “communities within a community.” Surrounded by empathetic classmates and teachers, students embrace opportunities to try new things and take supported risks.
Scheduled to break ground in early June 2021, students are forecasted to be in the new Middle School space by spring 2022.

Impact of our Middle School Expansion and Renovation
Expanded Innovation Lab, larger classrooms, and labs with flexible seating will promote:
- wide variety of learning styles
- collaborative inquiry, project-based learning
- demonstration of learning in multiple ways
- greater social distancing, if necessary
Three separate grade level communities (grades 6, 7, and 8) with dedicated, connected classroom and commons areas for each grade
- Spacious, student-friendly hallways and gathering areas
- Comfortable, age-appropriate school culture
- Closer relationships among students
- Teachers know students better
Communities within a community
“At this fragile time in their lives, Middle School students need, more than anything, a sense of belonging, a school community that truly feels like family. Because sixth, seventh, and eighth graders are at different developmental stages, the best Middle School facilities organize classrooms and common areas into discrete grade-level communities.”
