Stillwater Area Public Schools Will Open a New School in Woodbury

Stillwater Area Public Schools broke ground on its latest addition last April—Brookview Elementary School. Brookview, set to open for the 2017-18 school year at 11099 Brookview Road, will serve families from Valley Crossing Community School and help relieve overcrowding at Afton-Lakeland and Lake Elmo Elementary Schools. Grade configuration will be divided into three learning pods: preK through first grade, second and third grade, and fourth and fifth grade. “We want to create different-sized spaces for our students for flexibilities in our teaching,” says principal Mark Drommerhausen. “[We’re focused on] how to prepare and design learning commons and learning spaces to best meet individual needs of all our students.”
