Burks Middle School was tailored to the particular environmental and curricular needs of middle school students. Built to relieve overcrowding at the existing Monterey Elementary and Monterey High Schools, the 88,000 sqaare foot facility currently houses the 5th-8th grades.

The building is divided into a 5th and 6th grade wing and a 7th and 8th grade wing. Included in each are team area classrooms, a dedicated science classroom with demonstration table, a science lab with student work stations and restrooms. Shared spaces in the center of the building include a 1,200 seat gym, a multipurpose room with retractable theater seating and a stage, the library, the cafeteria and the art/music classrooms.

The exterior of the building features a monumental front entry composed of brick piers and precast panels which gives the school a strong visual presence within it's community.

UDG was selected by the Putnam County School Board in December of 2010 to design a 20,000 square foot 14 classroom addition to the school. The project is currently under construction and expected to be complete in 2012.
