East LA Middle School

Client: Charter School Organization

Scope: New Construction

Size: 42,500 SF

Completion: 2018

Project Manager: Lautaro Galvez, LEED AP


Berliner Architects recently completed a new home for an inspiring tuition-free public charter middle school which has a capacity of 490 students. This 3 story-facility contains 22 classrooms, each of which faces south to take advantage of natural lighting. 

The layout for East LA's new charter school derives heavily from the particular focus of its own curriculum. The school notably features an innovation lab, art room, and music room which support their STEAM-oriented teaching. In order to facilitate an additional emphasis on physical education, the charter school has a retractable wall in the multipurpose room allowing for seamless connection of indoor spaces with an outdoor play area.
