A Former Target Transforms Into New Middle School

What started life as a big-box Target store is now welcoming students through its front doors. The big-box-store-turned-school was a solution to the problem of where to house students while first Kirn Middle School and then Wilson Middle School undergo extensive renovations to their existing facilities.

Kirn Middle School students, teachers, and staff will spend the 2019-2020 school year in the building first, which features complete classrooms, music rooms, a gym, and a cafeteria. After this school year, Wilson Middle School will follow the same pattern.

Learn more about what the future holds for Kirn Middle School and Wilson Middle School.
