Welcome to Waconia Middle School

Although our school’s name and location have changed since the last school year, our commitment to a quality, inclusive education remains steadfast.

I have great personal pride to have the continued opportunity to lead our amazing students, collaborate with our talented staff, and build strong relationships with our caring community. Waconia Middle School is a great place to learn and grow. Students in Grades 6–8 will experience many opportunities for creative and unique learning experiences, learn in a safe and caring environment, collaborate with talented and dedicated staff, experience high levels of rigor and achievement, and build many lifelong memories and positive relationships.

For those new to the school or the district, we switched buildings with Waconia High School, and our former building has been transformed into a beautiful high school campus.

Waconia Middle School will open in 2017–2018 with an expected enrollment of about 900 students. The growth in the sixth-grade class continued throughout the summer, and we have welcomed many new students and families to Waconia. There have been a few staffing additions and changes in assignments over the summer months as well. Families may recognize some old faces in new positions and have the opportunity to welcome some new faces to Waconia and ISD 110.

The Waconia Middle School staff looks forward to an excellent school year. Please come by the school office or contact me directly with any questions or concerns. Thank you again for the continued opportunity to work with your children.
