CHANGING THE FACE OF EDUCATION
Brainerd High School Addition and Renovation is a multi-phase project designed to meet the needs of students, staff, and the community for generations to come. The largest improvements project of a $205,000,000 bond referendum approved in April 2018, the project brings grades 9-12 all under one roof in the existing 1968 North Campus building. The addition includes 143,000 square feet of new construction on three levels to match corresponding floors of the existing high school. The new construction features a 30,000-square-foot performing arts center, two gymnasiums, and a 24,000-square-foot aquatics pool addition on the lower level. With the addition of the eight-lane competitive swimming pool, the school is now able to host a variety of event and community groups. The renovation also includes a conversion of the 1964 South Campus building into alternative and transitional educational spaces.
