DECKER MIDDLE SCHOOL
Owner | Manor ISD
Location | Manor, Texas
From the east side to the west side of this 35-acre master planned site, there is a 30-foot drop in elevation. To overcome this challenge, the site was terraced for a multi-level floor plan, which provided core areas on the main floor with the academic classrooms grouped in a 3-story wing positioned at the low end of the site. Science labs are located on each floor of the classroom wing for easy accessibility for students.
The facility incorporates a wide range of programs including choir, band, career and technology labs and art rooms. A covered patio located adjacent the cafetorium provides a place for student socialization and outdoor dining.
Activity areas are located apart from educational areas to allow for after-hours events and community use while maintaining security and minimizing energy usage in the classroom areas.
