Mountain Lake school remodel and construction complete

(Mountain Lake, MN) – An old school building in Mountain Lake has new life and a new look.

A 139,890 square-foot remodel and addition is complete on the campus, which holds all students, preschool through 12th grade.  The project included demolishing an existing three-story section built in 1904; replacing it with a new two-story classroom addition.

The secondary portion of the campus received improved learning spaces, including classrooms for science and special education.  Flexible learning spaces, band, choir, and locker rooms were also designed.

Upgrades were made to the high school auditorium and theater, where new seating was installed and improvements made to sound and light.  The Career and Technical rooms were renovated into modern spaces, including a welding shop and new foods lab.

At the elementary building, two new full-sized classrooms were added.

Safety and security upgrades were made district-wide, including a new fire sprinkler system, updated fire alarms, and keyless entry.  Electrical, plumbing, lighting, and windows were also upgraded.

Voters approved a $13 million district bond referendum project in August 2018 to fund the project.  Kraus-Anderson was the contractor.
