Eagle Ridge Junior High School

Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District

Eagle Ridge Junior High School was designed to complement the District's two previous junior high schools by supporting a middle school curriculum. Architecturally, this meant creating more openness to encourage grouping and regrouping of students within the educational environment.

The 130,000 SF facility organizes six houses along a curvilinear street. Running parallel on the other side are specialized labs, a media center and staff center. the pool and performance spaces open to the commons for increased seating capacity. Most of the educational spaces emphasize flexibility to encourage integration and teaming.
