Northern Burlington County Regional Middle School


Columbus, New Jersey

The classrooms were initially built to accommodate 800 students in grades 7-8, with expansion planned for up to 1,200 students as growth occurs. The new middle school is located adjacent to the existing high school site, creating a joint-use campus and shares a common geothermal bore field for each building ground water source heat pump system. The new school was designed around the “team” concept of middle schools. Each grade is housed in its own 2-story academic wing, separated into three groups or “teams” of 125 students. Two teams are located on the first floor and one on the second floor. Future expansion to a fourth team has been planned to stack over the first floor with little disruption to the students. Each team is designed around five general classrooms, a science lab, small group instruction rooms, and a team storage area. Two teams share a computer lab, toilets, and a faculty team room. All teams are directly accessible to a media center and common areas.
