Forest Lake Area Schools

Project Details:

Forest Lake Area Schools, geographically the Twin Cities region’s largest school district, serves over 7,000 students across 11 cities and townships. On November 3, 2015, District voters said “yes” to a project focused on safety, security, educational improvements, and building infrastructure upgrades and replacements. This successful $143 million campaign, titled “Reshaping Opportunities for Success 2015 – 2020,” provided improvements across all District facilities including: 

  • Additions and remodel to Forest Lake Area Middle School (formerly Century Junior High) 
  • Forest Lake High School classroom addition and remodel
  • New six-court fieldhouse with multi-purpose floor
  • Additions and renovations to Forest Lake Area Community School (formerly Southwest Junior High)
  • Safety and security updates across all facilities
  • Addition to the District’s transportation building
  • Upgrades to all elementary facilities including safety, security, ADA updates, and building systems (Construction Management for upgrades at Elementary Schools managed by another firm)

From a unique science classroom addition at the High School, which creates an effective use of space between two classrooms, to a welcoming and open media center to a large and flexible fieldhouse, Forest Lake’s improvements have changed the landscape of how they educate their students.
