Lansing (Mich.) district is replacing its Mt. Hope STEAM school

Nov. 3, 2022
The fourth through seventh grade STEAM school is being demolished and will be replaced with a new school as part of the district's $130 million voter-approved bond.

The Lansing (Mich.) district is demolishing and rebuilding its Mt. Hope STEAM school, a campus for students in grades four through seven. 

While construction is underway, students will be relocated to the district's former Woodcreek Montessori school building, reports Spartan News Room, a student-run newsroom at Michigan State University. 

Funding for the upgrades to Mt. Hope come from a $130 million bond proposal that voters recently approved. 

The facility housing Mt. Hope STEAM opened in 1949 and has no air conditioning, a malfunctioning boiler room, inoperative bathrooms, and other structural problems.

The new school is expected to be completed in 2024. 

Sheridan Road STEAM Magnet School, Willow Elementary School, and Lewton School will also be demolished within the next year and rebuilt as part of the bond program.

The four schools are scheduled to reopen by 2027.
