‘Explore’ District 191 middle schools at upcoming events

Parents of future middle school students are invited to attend an upcoming "Explore Middle School" event at any of the three middle schools in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.

These events will provide opportunities for parent and students to learn how the district's middle schools help students explore their academic interests in a supportive environment. Every middle school in District 191 is a STEA³M school with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, plus Arts, AVID and Advanced Learning.

Student leadership, service clubs work to strengthen community

Students and staff in District have very strong traditions of community service. During this holiday season, groups in many schools have been raising money, collecting supplies or otherwise working to help people in need. Thank you to all these students and staff members for showing what it means to be Community Strong!

New classroom walls at Eagle Ridge support current learning needs

Like fashion, school designs change with the times, and at the time Eagle Ridge Middle School was built, open classrooms were all the fashion.

Now, though, open classrooms can be considered disruptive, as sound travels from one area to another, and a security concern. This summer, as part of Vision One91 facility upgrades in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, Eagle Ridge addressed those issues with the installation of classroom walls, windows and doors throughout the school.
