Los Banos School Site Breaks Ground

New Los Banos School Site Near Teal Landing!

A groundbreaking ceremony for construction of the new junior high school was held Monday.  The school, which will be located on Prairie Springs Drive south of Target and north of Anderson Homes’ Teal Landing community, will accommodate more than 1,200 students. It will open in the 2016-2017 school year.   Superintendent Steve Tietjen said although building the school is the most visible aspect of the project, the people who will create the school’s culture are the most important.  “It’s that group of parents and students and teachers who are going to set expectations for the future that will reflect the values,” he said. “Our job is going to be to ensure that our students at the new junior high (have) the same kinds of quality programs we have at Los Banos Junior High.”
