ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The St. Cloud Area School District will break ground on the new St. Cloud Tech High School next week.

The 324,000 square foot high school's design draws from the natural landscape of wooded area and granite outcroppings at the site, located off 33rd Street South.

The school will be divided into six integrated learning communities on two levels and will feature a combination of flexible learning spaces, group collaboration spaces, project and science labs and collaborative teaching spaces.

Superintendent Willie Jett says the groundbreaking marks an exciting time for St. Cloud, that wouldn't be possible without St. Cloud residents. 

"We are grateful for the ongoing partnership with Mayor Kleis and the City of St. Cloud. We also extend our sincere thanks to our broader community for its support of our vision," Jett said.

In November voters approved the building of the new $83.5 million high school.

The groundbreaking is slated for next Monday at 4:30 p.m. at the site of the new school.

If you would like to attend the groundbreaking, there isn't parking at the site yet so the district will be running shuttles from nearby Stride Academy.
