South Valley Middle School Campus Replacement

Gilroy Unified School District

South Valley Middle School was built in the mid 1950’s as a high school and later converted to a middle school. The 21-acre campus, located in a diverse neighborhood, had reached its’ end of life and needed replacement. The new “Village Concept” design includes a completely new look for the school and relocates the entry from a congested neighborhood street to another, providing much needed traffic relief and a safer drop off zone for the students. The school now has new classrooms with outdoor learning areas, science lab and makers space classrooms, a signature administration building, a Multi-Use and library building, and new gymnasium with a weigh room and indoor climbing wall. Tiger Quad, at the heart of the school, depicts the school’s mascot’s tiger paw, surrounded by the new outdoor learning spaces. This project was constructed on an occupied campus and was phased to allow for minimum occupancy disruption.
