STEM Focused Improvements

As part of a larger district-wide project, both Wausau East and West High Schools received significant upgrades including a technical education and metal shop wing.

The addition to East High included an expansion to the automotive department and enhanced classroom space. The project also renovated the metal and wood shop as well as the graphic design area.

At West High, the agriculture department was relocated into renovated classroom space with direct access to the addition and new greenhouse. A new broadcast television department and computer lab were also relocated to renovated spaces, creating ideal learning spaces for the students.
