At Morton Middle, our district updated heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems that were initially installed more than 60 years ago.

“We have new windows that open now and air-conditioning in the gym,” said Matthew Williams, Ed.D, Morton Middle principal. “It was fun to see how they seamlessly put together the 1960s into the 2020s.”

The Morton Middle project included 13 new classrooms designed with collaboration and flexibility in mind.

“You can do a lot with these spaces. One classroom can be a math or a science room,” said Dr. Williams. “You’re not stuck where you are anymore.”
