Andersen United Middle School is scheduled to undergo a significant renovation and is outlined below.  To receive periodic updates on project milestones and other news, please sign up to receive e-alerts.

School Location: 1098 Andersen Lane, Minneapolis, MN. 55407

Scope of Work:

Improvements at Andersen are proposed within a 5-Year plan.  Work will be completed as funding is approved for each phase.

The CDD has designated this school to become a community middle school with a dual language magnet program.  Some immediate work has been identified to be completed this summer to support the change.  Phase 1 work includes improved lighting in stairwells, some new furniture, additional lockers, and accessibility updates in single-user restrooms.  In Phase 2, several new science labs will be created throughout the building as well, but that work is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2022.

Our goals for the 5-year plan include potential projects such as daylighting, kitchen/lunchroom upgrades, restroom updates, improvements for technology and performance spaces, and general updates required for maintenance and operation of the building.  These future projects are not funded at this time.

A virtual community meeting was held on June 1, 2021 to provide information about the project, including the planning and design process and timeline.  View the presentation here:  Andersen Community Engagement Presentation.

We invited members of the community to be a part of our Stakeholder Committee to provide continuity in the discussions and designs to assist us as we move forward.  Meetings will be held in June and September.

Another community meeting will be held in October to provide an update to the project and process.

At this time, all meetings will be held virtually. Check back here often for updates or sign up for our e-alerts.
