Menasha High School was built in 1938, and is well known for its architectural significance “It’s a school that you see and you go, that’s a real school,” says Senior Isaac Vosters.
So when taxpayers approved a referendum last year to renovate the school, preserving the outside look was a key topic. “The way the plans have been drawn up, and the way the referendum was decided, was to really keep this facade intact as part of the building,” says Superintendent Chris Vander Heyden. “Hence the additions and remodeling verse what was considered at one time, just a tear down and rebuild completely. So maintaining that tradition was an important aspect to the voters on menasha.”
