The Mid-City Campus is an integral part of the 10-block Master Plan for the City Heights Community. Over a 12-year period, nine different projects were constructed to create a true urban village.  The large arched entry portico of the building faces the new library, theater, swim center, park and elementary school across the street, reminiscent of urban school projects of the past.
The three-story, 58,400 square foot educational facility contains 34 classrooms and computer labs, a media resource center, as well as administration and related support spaces. The project exceeds Title 24 requirements by 30% and includes 50 underground parking spaces. Solar energy helps to support the building's total energy needs.
Since its completion, the Mid City Campus has been the recipient of a National American Institute of Architects (AIA) Award for Socially Responsive Building, The Helen Putnam Award, a National Bridge Builders Award, and an Orchid from the San Diego AIA Foundation.
