Georgie D. Tyler Middle School

Architect: RRMM Architects Link Opens in New Window

Construction Manager: Vanir Construction Link Opens in New Window

The project was approved by the School Board of Isle of Wight County and the Board of Supervisors in May 2011. Isle of Wight County officials saved taxpayers by applying for a $7.5 million interest-free loan to support the overall funding of the project. The new 2-story facility will be built on the same property as Windsor Middle School between Courthouse Highway and North Court Street. The approved design allows the existing middle school to remain open while the new facility is being constructed.

The design will be comprised of approximately 115,000 total square feet and include “grade houses” for 6th, 7th 8th grades. The initial school capacity will be for 550 students. The core facilities are being designed to accommodate up to 800 students, allowing for future expansion.

Each “grade house” will contain two science labs that share a science prep room. In addition to the “grade houses”, an exploratory wing will offer students electives in such courses as band, chorus, foreign language, technology/fabrication, business and art.

Other spaces included in the program are a full-size competition gymnasium with telescoping bleachers that seat approximately 800 with locker rooms, a 400 seat auditorium, special education classrooms and a media center.
