Huntington East Middle School
1 Campbell Drive
Huntington, WV 25705
This state-of-the-art facility combines the existing populations of Enslow Middle School and Beverly Hills Middle School. Located in the heart of both communities, the new facility will house approximately 770 students. Its contemporary design is home to a middle school curriculum layout familiar throughout Cabell County Schools. The brick façade is accented with metal panels and highlighted with large amounts of glass that provide natural light to the classrooms. A curved corridor divides the building while slowly widening and developing into the art room. The art room showcases a large window introducing natural light into the room and the corridor. The curved façade along the corridor is emphasized with copper-finished metal panels.
Cabell County Schools is currently pursuing the first LEED Gold Certified middle School in Cabell County. The building and curriculum boasts of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teams that will compete against each other in energy consumption and are able to track through technology energy usage throughout the year. Through online learning and technology systems throughout the facility, students are also able to work with and compete with facilities throughout the world.
The building itself is a teaching tool. A pulper system is in place to not only consume kitchen waste, but also all paper waste throughout the school. The students are able to take this product and provide compost for the school’s vegetable gardens, which will provide additional produce for the county's “farm-to-table” program at the school. The facility includes a new gymnasium, cafeteria with a stage, art, music, band, orchestra, and science facilities that are second to none.
