Dixon Middle School has been serving students since 1931 during the great depression. The school has grown to three times its size since that time with many additions to both the inside and the outside. It currently houses the largest collection of artwork in the school district.
Board of Education Plans to Move Dixon Middle School
Dixon Middle School is a 90 year old structure and is in need of extensive renovation and earthquake stabilization to be safe for students. Considering the cost involved and the growth on the west side of Provo, the Provo Board of Education has voted to move Dixon Middle School and close the current facility. The newly selected plot is at Footprinter Park located at 1150 S. 1350 West. The new school designs recommend a one story building with three times more available ground space than the existing school.
