01 Project Overview
The new Hilliard Memorial Middle School uses future-focused design concepts to prepare students for tomorrow.

Hilliard City Schools, a high-performing school district in suburban Columbus, Ohio, is using a new middle school to deliver on its vision of preparing students who are “Ready for Tomorrow.” The future-focused curriculum required a future-ready design to support student collaboration and integrated technology.

Rather than a traditional media center, the new school includes a Learning Commons, complete with video production and digital learning tools. The design strikes a balance between innovation and equity by modifying an existing district floor plan, while integrating 21st century learning environments at key points.

I just want to say ‘thank you’ to you and your teams for the amazing work you [Fanning Howey] are doing on the new Memorial Middle School. It was a great visit yesterday. What was most evident is the pride and culture of everyone on the job site. I know this doesn’t happen by chance; it is purposeful and woven into the fabric of your organizations. As leaders, you model this culture every day. I am proud that the Hilliard City School District has chosen such strong partners in this work together.
