Copper Mountain Middle, located in Herriman, is currently under construction and has an anticipated opening date of August 2013. The student enrollment at South Hills, Fort Herriman and Elk Ridge Middle Schools has grown steadily and are now at or beyond capacity. It is anticipated the opening of this new middle school will help to balance student populations in all four schools and provide additional room for anticipated growth.
The capacity of the building will be 1,300 students, with the facility being built on a 26-acre site with adequate parking for staff and patrons. The front of the building will face east with the beautiful Oquirrh Mountains in the background. Great care has been taken to make sure the building is energy efficient.
