Darrel Swope Middle School

  • The Swope Middle School expansion and renovation nears final completion. 

    Construction is scheduled to be completed at the end of February 2023. The project includes a new gym and basketball courts, a new two-story classroom building, a new kitchen, and renovations to the older section of the building including an updated HVAC system. 

    To accomodate the construction, Swope Middle School had a modified calendar and started school on August 29, 2022. 

    An official Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held on January 30, 2023 to celebrate this expansion and renovation project.
