Gardiner Middle School

Oregon City, OR

Oregon City’s new middle school represents the school district’s commitment to reimagining the school experience by putting students first.

The Oregon City School District replaced Gardiner Middle School which was originally built in 1954. The inclusive design process, led by BRIC Architecture, focused on a core theme of “By Students, For Students” with a commitment to put students first.

The new 150,000 square foot middle school and athletic field were constructed on site while the existing school was occupied. Once construction of the new middle school building was completed, the existing school building was demolished, and the Site improvements were completed. 3J provided land use planning services included a Conditional Use application, a Site Plan and Design Review application, and a Master Plan Concept Development Plan and Detailed Development Plan.
