Expected enrollment: 500 (9-12)


Tri-City United High School, which serves Montgomery, Lonsdale and Le Center, has several changes in store this year. Students will now be able to take Project Lead the Way (PLTW) courses, beginning with a 9th-grade Principles of Engineering class offered to 50 students in place of their general science course.

Advisor/advisee time will now take place after first hour for 15 minutes. After the middle of first quarter, students who don’t need extra help will have the chance to study, head to the gym or do other activities. Students can also take an “e-break” at this time.

Two more classrooms are being added to the west end of the building, with completion expected by early October and teachers moving in over MEA weekend.
