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.
