Originally built in the 1930s, this 75-year-old high school was outdated, undersized, and inflexible for today’s active and personalized learning methods. A major transformation was needed to reboot this historical structure for 21st century learning. Miron assisted various citizen and staff committees working collaboratively to determine how best to transform Menasha High School and better prepare students for future work environments. A community-wide survey showed the majority of district residents supported addressing the needs at MHS.
The final solution involved additions for science and music; expanded technical education areas; remodel of academic spaces for active learning and collaboration areas; transformation of physical education and athletic spaces; improvements to building accessibility, natural day lighting, and parking; building systems upgrades for energy efficiency; and restoration of key historic structures.
