Green Valley Middle School
1450 Gold Hill Rd
Fairfield, CA 94534
The new Green Valley Middle School is located in the Cordelia area and provides 32 classrooms with up to 64,000 square feet in building space. Previously, students attended the old Green Valley Middle School which was only 7 acres in size and did not have adequate space according to State standards. Many of the classrooms were held in portable buildings. The old school was also located near high voltage power lines and the busy Interstate 680/80 interchange. At the new school site, students will be able to enjoy a larger, more modern facility. The new site is over 20 acres and has full-size playing fields for soccer, football, baseball, softball, and track. The school also has a paved blacktop area for outdoor basketball and other sports.
Design West prepared the design plans for the school. The school is a sister of the new Crystal Middle School in Suisun City. Reuse of plans at the two schools allowed for lower design costs and more efficient construction. The school opened its doors to students on September 7th, 2004. The new school was funded through local Measure C with matching funds from the State.
The school was constructed by Sierra Bay Contractors. Facility Services of Napa provided construction management.The new school has a two story design to maximize space use. Being built on a hill side, the second story offers gorgeous views of Cordelia, Fairfield, and the surrounding valleys. The classrooms all have computer access, Cable TV outlets, lots of built in storage, plenty of windows for natural lighting and built in sinks. The campus offers fully plumbed science classrooms with eye washes, vented chemical handling stations, and gas for experiments.
The school also has a modern media arts program. Like the new Crystal Middle School, Green Valley has an outdoor amphitheater for special events. The amphitheater provides a space for students during school hours in a secure setting in the center of the campus. The School also has a full-sized gymnasium for basketball, volleyball and other indoor sports. Next to the gymnasium is a spacious multipurpose room with a full service kitchen and a custom lighted theatrical/musical stage.
