Ray Reynolds Middle School, named for the late Pasco High School principal and school district administrator, is Pasco’s fourth middle school.
The school at 9507 Burns Road will serve students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades when it opens. Construction was expected to wrap up by Aug. 11.
The $35 million, 114,299-square-foot building occupies a 33-acre site on the northern edge of Pasco city limits.
The building is designed with a two-story classroom wing, with 47 classrooms and accommodations for after-hours use by the public.
The steel-framed structure is clad in masonry veneer with metallic wall paneling. Clerestory windows let natural light into the building.
Dan Krippaehne of MMEC Architecture & Interiors in Kennewick designed the school.
Fowler General Construction of Richland was the contractor, with Jeff Durfee serving as project manager. Doug Carl of Alliance Management & Construction Solutions of Kennewick served as the Pasco School District’s representative.
