Designs for the future Newcastle middle school show an open plaza entrance with benches for seating, and lots of windows in the two-story building. Below, the school’s site plan shows how the architect envisions the layout of the school.

The Renton School District unveiled the latest designs of its future Newcastle middle school at a Dec. 5 open house.

One of the major changes made to the layout since the district’s July 18 Newcastle open house was the decision to move the bus drop-off to 116th Avenue Southeast. It was previously situated along Newcastle Way.

The two-story school designed by NAC Architecture will occupy the 11-acre site of the Renton Academy, next to Hazelwood Elementary School.

The project remains on schedule, and the school is slated to open in fall 2016.

The project was made possible thanks to voter support of an April 2012 bond measure. The $97 million bond measure will fund the school, improvements to the Lindbergh High School pool and other construction costs.

The Renton Academy is at 6928 116th Ave. S.E.
