Jose M. Lopez Middle School


LOPEZ MIDDLE SCHOOL represents a joint effort between pfluger and North East ISD to create a new prototype capable of enhancing middle school education. The entire planning team began by touring and analyzing twelve of the best middle schools in Texas. Separate small teams studied various school facilities, operations and curriculum to determine how best to integrate these key concepts into an outstanding educational facility. The resulting design creates an innovative learning environment by organizing the school into three distinct grade level Houses, each with a flexible Collaborative Learning Center.
