Littleton Public Schools–Newton Middle School

Newton Middle School, a two-story, 164,000-square-foot facility, was constructed on the existing school’s occupied site, focusing on providing the latest forward-thinking learning environments. Divided into grade-level pods with flex and breakout spaces, the school promotes collaborative learning and accommodates varied learning styles.

The facility includes 24 classrooms, six science rooms, an art room, a gymnasium/auxiliary gym, a research and design room, a production lab, a kitchen, a cafeteria with a learning stair area, language and technology classrooms, and instrumental and choir classrooms. One wing of the school is devoted to the athletic center, which houses a large gym with three courts, a running track, and a climbing wall. A new junior stadium and playing fields are also on the Newton campus, providing additional playable surfaces for students.

The Newton Middle School replacement project is the flagship project for the LPS 2018 Bond Program and is LPS’s first replacement school in several decades. As the most high-profile project within the Bond, it was often used by LPS as a barometer for the overall status of the Bond program. RTA’s leadership through the community engagement and programming process set the tone for this project. They were always prepared for meetings, thoughtful and respectful through their interactions with stakeholders, and responsive to questions or comments. RTA took the time to understand LPS’s culture, needs, and goals for the school. They took detailed notes that allowed them to synthesize a dynamic vision for LPS’s 21st century learning environments that ultimately exceeded all our expectations. I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to RTA Architects for their inspired design and outstanding performance on this project.
