When it was time to replace its 1950’s structure, Mt. Jordan Middle School updated both its building and its mission to reflect a STEAM curriculum. You’ll see it in “learning community” classrooms focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—and thanks to an insightful principal, a focus on the Arts as well. Wanting students to feel surrounded by great learning, MHTN Architects brought us in to design to the school’s environmental graphics. A timeline showcasing great STEAM achievements winds through the school, reminding students how real their contributions can be. Photographs by Paul Richer, Architecture by MHTN Architects.

On the first floor of the school, above the row of lockers, students can see that the stone age happened long before the Rolling Stones actually performed. An in-depth, comprehensive view of world history is on display at this forward-thinking middle school. Students can follow along and see how advancements in science, technology, engineering, arts and math, all coincide and reverberate through the ages. Students are invited to learn and then wonder—what will I add to these walls?
We believe that great design has the power to arrest the eye, engage the mind, and grow brands—simultaneously. We believe a powerful brand is a relational experience. It is the point of intersection where the offering of the company jives so intuitively with the needs of its human audience, the two have an instant connection with each other. And not just once, but over and over.
