 We are a K thru 12 facility, all under one roof, covering 270,000 square feet. The facility has gone through many remodels and improvements over the years. The highlight being the 900 seat performing arts theatre completed in 2001. The district owns 127 acres of property that extends down to the Sauk River. This allows not only for athletic fields but a large nature area for our students to explore as an outdoor classroom. The jewel of our outdoor athletic complex is our track and field complex which includes a "Field Turf" football field which was installed in 2012.
