The Richland School District will hold an official groundbreaking for the new middle school in West Richland on Wednesday, March 30, at 12:30 pm. The 30-acre site is located near the intersection of Keene Road and Belmont Boulevard. Community members are invited.

The general contractor is Fowler General Construction, Richland. The District’s fourth middle school will be 108,000 square feet in size and house 800 students. It will open in August 2017.

In June 2014, the District selected Design West, Kennewick, to be the architectural firm for the new middle school project. Architect drawings and site plans can be viewed at this link.

Richland School District residents approved a $98 million bond issue for the new school and eight other projects in February 2013. Details and timelines for all the projects are available on the RSD web site.
