Lake Nona Middle School Relief
What once was undeveloped pastures, Lake Nona is a 7,000-acre mixed-use planned community and one of the fastest growing developments in southeast Orlando. With more and more families moving into the area, the existing Lake Nona Middle School has reached capacity. Located on a 26-acre site, the Lake Nona Middle School Relief project is a multi-story, 171,033-square-foot prototype school able to accommodate 1,348 students.
The new, state-of-the-art facility will include classrooms, resource rooms, skills development labs, science labs, art, band, vocal, orchestra, gymnasium, agriculture lab, technology lab, business lab, family/consumer science lab, media center, administration, dining room, kitchen, multi-purpose room and support spaces.
Athletic facilities consist of softball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, track, long jump lanes, shot put and soccer/football field. An extensive site package includes new parking areas, parent loop, bus loop, exterior walkways and canopies, underground utilities, stormwater drainage system, landscaping, irrigation and site lighting. The school is currently under construction and is expected to be complete in time for the 2017-2018 school year.
