Whittier and Irving Middle Schools
Almost identical, the Whittier and Irving Middle School buildings, both needed many upgrades. Built in the 1970s, these schools were originally designed with an open-concept meant to enhance more team focused and collaborative teaching strategies. Open concept design meant fewer classroom areas enclosed by walls. A growing number of students, coupled with the development of modern teaching methods and technologies, caused the environment to become chaotic. Crafton Tull provided the necessary design upgrades to help solve the traffic and floor plan dysfunctions.
