It will remain a military academy. But because the U.S. Army is cutting funding, St. Thomas will have to “figure out what the program looks like,” he said, and that will have a budget impact, too.

The school is in the midst of transitioning to a one-to-one device program, which will happen by the 2015-16 school year. In addition, new people have been hired for three key administrative positions, said Mohs.

Tri-City United

Principal: Alan Fitterer

Tri-City United High School, which enrolls students from Montgomery, Lonsdale and Le Center, is offering two new classes this year, said Principal Alan Fitterer.

Both are College in the Schools classes through the University of Minnesota, so students are concurrently enrolled at the college and at high school. A human anatomy class is being added, replacing an advanced biology course. A mathematical modeling class is also being brought back this year, he said. The classes are among 10 at the high school that offer concurrent enrollment.

The school’s marching band is preparing to play in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Cork, Ireland, in March. The trip will provide priceless cultural experiences, he said.

Officials at Arcadia Charter School, Hastings, Northfield and Simley High Schools could not be reached.
