The Marshalltown Community School District will host an informational meeting on Wednesday, May 22, focusing on the facility needs at B.R. Miller Middle School.

The event will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Miller Middle School (125 S. 11th St., Marshalltown) and will include a presentation and tours of the historic school, which has served the community for nearly a century. MCSD administrators and representatives from INVISION Architecture and Boyd Jones will be available to answer questions.

“This meeting will provide residents an opportunity to learn more about the facility needs at Miller Middle School and witness firsthand some of the challenges our students and staff face every day,” said Dr. Theron Schutte, Superintendent. “The valuable feedback we receive from the community will play a role in the district’s planning.”

Miller Middle School welcomed its first students in 1925 as Marshalltown High School and has since seen multiple additions and various updates. However, the building’s age, outdated design, and space limitations, among other issues, create challenges that hinder modern learning.

MCSD's School Board and administration have invested significant time in a thorough examination of Miller Middle School. They have engaged with local focus groups, enlisted community members to serve on an advisory task force, and partnered with INVISION and Boyd Jones to identify possible solutions to these facility needs.
