General Marshall Middle School

In the heart of Austin’s Mueller new urbanism development, the three-story General Marshall Middle School reflects Austin ISD’s vision of “reinventing the urban school experience” on a campus focused on interdisciplinary, project-driven learning.

The design fits the comprehensive campus, including a gymnasium, tennis courts and sports fields, on an odd-shaped 10-acre site that was once the runway for the municipal airport. Built vertically around a central courtyard, the 130,000-square-foot, LEED Gold campus takes full advantage of the site and doubles as a community hub, with accessible facilities and connections to the local transit station.
