Twin Falls Middle School

Snoqualmie Valley School District

Twin Falls Middle School, named after one of the most famous waterfalls of the Pacific Northwest, has three academic wings that converge into the commons. Each wing is designed to be self-contained as a “small school,” so as to serve nearly all of the instructional needs of the entire grade. Science areas in each wing have easy access to outdoor learning opportunities.

The focus of the building interior is the commons. All wings of the building converge at the commons stage. The commons serves as the school’s grand entry hall, community center, cafeteria, auditorium, and generally as the “living room” of the school. The gymnasium is prominently placed to encourage access by the public for special events. Branching off of the commons, the library is given a special position at the quieter, back area of the school and is a favorite place of comfort, beauty and resources. The large glass windows at the reading area provides an unobstructed view of the wooden slopes and rocky precipice of Mount Si.

“I believe that the HOA team will be an asset to any project for which they are contracted as their eagerness, advocacy skills, architectural and management expertise, coupled with their concern for community show in every aspect of what they do.”
- Carl Larsen, Former Operations Supervisor, Snoqualmie Valley School District
