Several stations in the STEM lab include 3D printing, video production and stop-motion animation. “Kids love it. It’s awesome to see them use their creativity and create different ideas,” said Brad Thorson, school principal. “It’s an awesome addition to our school.”

Besides classrooms, the school includes technology labs, an art room, family consumer science labs, a media center, gymnasium, two music rooms, a multipurpose physical education room, locker rooms, a large central commons, and a kitchen.
