Wentzville School District Opens New Middle School

July 28, 2022

The Wentzville School District officially opened the doors to North Point Middle School, the District’s fourth middle school, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 28. 

The new building is 216,962  square feet and it is the largest middle school built in the history of the WSD. Despite being built in the midst of a pandemic, North Point Middle School’s construction continues the District’s long-time tradition of completing projects on time and under budget. 

The WSD was the fastest-growing school district in Missouri for the past two decades and now has more than 17,300 students. During that time, the WSD has built 15 schools and buildings, all of which have been under budget and on schedule.

North Point Middle School will welcome students for the first time on Aug. 22.  It was built with funds from Proposition C, which was passed by WSD voters in June 2020. 

“We can’t wait to welcome our students to this building next month,” said Dr. Kelly Mantz. “Middle school is a time when all of our students are trying to figure out who they are, and what they like and dislike. North Point Middle School will be a place where everyone belongs and students become the best version of themselves.”

The WSD has saved over $1.3 million by utilizing the same blueprints for its existing buildings since 2005. 

The building is located at 2275 West Meyer Blvd. Just last year, the District opened North Point High School on the same campus.

“Today is the day to celebrate that our building is finally complete,” Dr. Mantz. “It’s just the beginning of the journey. The real celebration will begin when our staff and students start the school year and create the traditions that will continue for years to come. They will create memories while learning, growing, and developing into who they are meant to be, living out the District Mission of Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow!”
