Johnson Middle School

The 283,000 sf John Hayden Johnson Middle School in Southeast DC was built in 1970, and underwent a fast-track renovation in the summer of 2015, as part of the 2010-2016 Capital Improvement Plan to bring the school into compliance with current educational specifications.

Renovations included improvements to the main entrance and lobby as well as the modernization of several floors and classrooms, and mechanical system upgrades. A new canopy was added to the entrance and the lobby was upgraded with plenty of space and seating for visitors. Other additions included a new ADA ramp from the drop off zone to the main entrance, HVAC upgrades to the gymnasium, and new AV equipment for the academic spaces.
