The new, 98,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is ready to welcome 1,300 students in grades 6-8. It stands as a testament to the vision of providing an exceptional learning environment for the young minds of our community. 

“As Superintendent of this amazing District,” said Dr. Jennifer Root, Superintendent of Menifee Union School District, “moments like today instill a sense of hope for the future of our students, knowing that we are laying the foundation to prepare today’s students for their limitless futures.” Dr. Root further shared how the district is proud to partner with Erickson-Hall Construction for their stellar execution to make this project come to life. 

Kathryn Newport Middle School is a school designed to inspire. This magnificent campus features 48 modern classrooms with a particular focus on STEAM classes to nurture creativity and critical thinking from the outset. The school boasts three thoughtfully designed classroom wings, allowing students to explore various subjects in dedicated spaces and promoting a holistic approach to learning. 

“We are proud to have constructed this new, innovative middle school for the Menifee Union School District,” said Mat Gates, President of Erickson-Hall. “Working closely with the district to deliver this important school to the public for students to thrive and learn is an accomplishment we were honored to be a part of. ”

Kathryn Newport Middle School provides a plethora of top-notch amenities. The multi-purpose room, complete with a stage and amphitheater, will serve as the epicenter for artistic expression and community gatherings. The gymnasium, coupled with locker rooms, encourages a culture of fitness and sportsmanship, nurturing a well-rounded development for the students. There is also a new parking lot and driving aisles to make commuting to school safe and convenient for students, staff and other community members that come to the campus.
