Midland Elementary School
Before


After

Completed March 2006

Midland Elementary School is the oldest school in the Poway Unified School District and was therefore in the first group of renovation projects. Midland has undergone a complete redevelopment of its entire campus. The existing buildings were entirely demolished to make room for a brand new campus.

Demolition of the exiting campus began in the summer of 2004. Work on the new campus started in October 2004, as did the start of the record setting rainy season in Poway....but we pushed through the challenges. The work has addressed inequality of learning facilities, including expanding core facilities, adding classrooms, and access to technology.

Midland Elementary School was originally built in 1924 and underwent extensive renovations and additions between 1949 and 1960, creating the buildings in use until June 2004. The school has a current enrollment of 730 students. The principal is Marylou Wilson. The new school features an extensive overhaul of the site, including five classroom buildings, one administration, multi-purpose, and food service building, and enhanced play areas.

Projects planned at Midland include:

  • Replace aging, inefficient school with a school facility meeting current building codes, including earthquake, electrical, plumbing, and ADA. Midland is the District’s oldest school. Cost estimates have shown complete replacement is more cost-effective than upgrading buildings.

During construction of the new school, Midland students and staff are housed in interim facilities on the Garden Road Elementary School campus. These interim facilities have been designed to provide the Midland campus with its own identity while sharing some facilities with Garden Road. The decision to relocate from Midland to Garden Road was deemed the best financial and educational solution to ensure that the children, the educational process and the planned expenditures of taxpayer dollars for facilities were not adversely affected.
