Awarded: Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) SC Chapter, Excellence Citation Award for Community Engagement, 2021

Fairforest Middle School is a new facility that replaced the old middle school in Fairforest, SC. The facility serves 1,100 students and provides a STEM based curriculum for sixth, seventh, and eighth grade. The 225,000 SF, two-story building features three grade level communities designed around three learning commons: a cafeteria with a platform, a gymnasium, and a planetarium.

The 108-seat planetarium is a Spitz Sci Dome 1Q 4K Lazer system, which ensures an ultra-high resolution and brightness, has a 40-foot wide dome, and the observatory features a free-standing telescope. The planetarium is not limited to just astronomy purposes, but also available for science, social studies, and district-wide use.

The project was completed in 2019 for the new school year.
