Ramstad Middle School Hosts Open House

Posted: Updated:

The doors may have been open for a few months now, but Thursday was the official community open house for the new Erik Ramstad Middle School.

 Students, school staff, and Minot Public School officials joined Governor Jack Dalrymple and Senator John Hoeven in celebrating the completion of the new 720 student building.  It took just a year and several months to complete the 126,000 square foot school which includes new cost-saving and state-of-the-art features. 

 Minot Public Schools Superintendent Mark Vollmer says the school's name-sake would be happy with the new facility, "Erik Ramstad, who the Ramstad Middle School is named after, was a founding father of Minot.  He was a supporter of education, he supported land-grants through Minot State University, even through his will he left land to the kids of Minot where the old Ramstad School was built.  I think Erik Ramstad would look at this and be pretty proud."

 The total project cost came in between $36 and $37 Million.  The new school has room to house 200 more students than the original building.  There are 565 students enrolled at Ramstad Middle School.
