Plans for a new middle school and athletic fields in Clifton Heights were recently presented to local community members and elected officials, writes Kevin Tustin for the Delaware County News Network.
Dan McGarry, the acting superintendent of the Upper Darby School District, and KCBA Architects principal Michael Kelly unveiled a preview for the new school. It will be developed on a 13.7-acre tract of land at North Springfield Road.
Depending on the final version, the school with reconfigured athletic fields at the back would be able to hold either 750 or 950 students. It would be divided between community spaces and academic learning spaces and potentially a STEM center.
There would also be a parent drop-off and pick-up area in front, and a bus staging area that would loop around the back of the building onto North Sycamore Avenue.
“We want to make sure we’re building a 21st-century space to teach our students,” said Kelly.
A formal presentation of the plan will take place on Feb. 26 at the school board committee meeting for the board and the public to add their input.
