The Twigg-Smith Pavilion holds up to 400 people, with 175 fixed seats and a custom-designed set of movable bleachers with backrests for greater flexibility. The Pavilion has become one of the most vibrant and well-used spaces on the Middle School campus.

The pavilion honors alumni and Trustee Thurston Twigg-Smith, who graduated in 1938, and whose great-great-grandfather was a Trustee from 1851 to 1862.
