Gilkey International Middle School
French American International School
Gilkey International Middle School provides a new dedicated home for 6-8th graders on the French American International School’s campus in Northwest Portland. The “elle” shaped building nestles on a deeply sloped site adjacent to an existing forest, and it aims to take advantage of both the natural beauty and the educational opportunities offered by this lush landscape. In addition to the 14 classrooms, 2 science rooms, collaboration spaces, lunch hub, and offices to serve the middle school, this project will improve connectivity for the whole campus with the creation of a “pedestrian street,” an amphitheater, outdoor dining facilities, and a new trailhead deck leading to the existing trails.
Gilkey International Middle School aims to enroll in the Energy Trust of Oregon’s Path to Net Zero program.
