A brief program begins at 5:30 p.m. in High School Auditorium.

Please join us as we celebrate the opening of the new addition and renovations to the Hermantown Middle and High Schools. The program will feature community members highlighting the project from inception to completion. The Hermantown Middle and High Schools will be available for touring before and after the ceremony.

The approximately $38 million project includes converting the existing High School into a Middle School and constructing a new High School as an addition on the site to create a unified campus. The facility boasts shared features, such as an auditorium, kitchen, music suite, entrances and bus corridors. At the High School, some lecture spaces are open to enhance 21st Century learning, including a digital commons / media center with flexible breakout areas.

The community of Hermantown passed a $48 million referendum in 2013 to fund these improvements as well as a large renovation project for the Elementary School that opened in 2015.

TKDA collaborated with Wold Architects and Engineers on the building design and Kraus-Anderson was the Construction Manager for all the Hermantown school improvement projects.
