New Middle School in Windsor

The Need

Windsor Middle School is serving 809 students in a building intended for 700 students. In addition to capacity challenges, 36,172 sq. ft. of Windsor Middle School is inoperable. Severance Middle School is now serving at 126% core building capacity (755 students served for a 600-student building).


This project envisions the construction of an additional middle school at a site off of 15th Street, a direct result of community feedback. We're working to purchase a 40-acre site, located adjacent to a future town park, from the Town of Windsor. The Board looks to extend the useful life of the existing Windsor Middle building through repairs, continuing as a middle school, as well as construct an addition to Severance Middle.
