Facilities Plan: School-by-School

Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School
100 Elbel Court

On August 25, 2005, the City School District of Albany celebrated the opening of its newest small middle school. The new three-story middle school is 140,000 square feet. It will be home to no more than 650 students in grades 6-8. Students in each grade are divided into teams of up to 115 students each. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders are separated by floor. To see photos of the school, visit the Myers Photo Gallery.

Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School is home to many facilities also available to its neighbors, including a 25-yard, six-lane pool, gym, 650-seat auditorium, and library with computer resource room.

Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School is an integral part of the district's plan to improve middle-level education by providing all students with smaller, stronger, and safer learning environments.

Project history
After reviewing several construction sites over more than four years, the Board of Education chose the 18.6 acre site adjacent to Kelton Court near Whitehall Road. Voters had originally approved locating the new middle school at the edge of Westland Hills Park, but the district found that it would require additional environmental approvals to build at the site and might cause delays.

As a result, the board asked voters to approve the purchase of the current site; voters approved the purchase in June 2003.

Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School is home to:  

  • 24 general instruction classrooms

  • 6 Special Education classrooms

  • 6 science rooms with prep space

  • 2 family and consumer science rooms

  • 2 technology classrooms

  • 1 choral music room with practice area

  • 2 art rooms with kiln and storage

  • Library/media center and computer resource room

  • Gymnasium

  • 25-yeard, six-lane competition swimming pool

  • Lecture hall/auditorium

  • Cafeteria and kitchen 

  • Administrative support areas for principal, assistant principals, guidance, attendance, and special services

  • Nurse's suite with exam room, bed area, and toilet

  • Faculty work areas

Other features:

  • Full handicapped accessibility

  • Energy-efficient heating and ventilation systems

  • Air conditioning throughout the building

  • Security and fire detection systems

  • Computers and Internet access in every classroom
