Campus Profile

Terman Middle School 655 Arastradero RD Built in: 1957, 2004

Terman Middle School is comprised of 11 single story buildings on a 6.6 acre site adjacent to Terman park, which serves as field space for the school under an agreement with the City of Palo Alto. The school was originally built in 1957, and closed during the 1980ís as a result of declining enrollment. The facility was leased to the JCC for much of this period. In 2003, the school was modernized from its use by the JCC and reopened as a small middle school site for grades 6-8. In 2004, the K wing was also renovated into 5 more classrooms.
