About the World Language Center
Niu Valley Middle School began construction on its new World Language Center on Monday, August 12, 2019. The planning of this new building began in 2014 with the 21st Century Innovation plan.
The new World Language Center will consist of four classrooms. The building is considered a “high performing” building with a natural ventilation design that will keep the building cool during the daytime and allow the passage of heat to escape at night.
The location of this building will be next to the music building across from the cafeteria on the school’s upper field.
The construction of this building will be done in two phases with the first phase projected to end in August of 2020. The first phase of construction will consist of laying the foundation for the entire structure and an external roof that will keep the four classrooms cool from the sun. Also included in the first phase will be one classroom, the technology server room and the men’s and women’s individual restrooms.
The second phase, which has also been funded, is projected to take place a year after the first phase is completed and is projected to conclude in the Fall of 2021. The second phase will build the remaining 3 classrooms along with men’s and women’s restrooms. This new World Language Building is a perfect complement to Niu Valley Middle School’s International Baccalaureate program’s focus on giving our students a world class education.
