You are invited to a special tour at Central Middle School
Eden Prairie Schools May 14 referendum will have an impact on all schools – with improved security and more flexible learning spaces. But Central Middle School (CMS) will see even more changes, including a new performing arts center, a new classroom addition to help accommodate students and an expanded cafeteria. Two half-hour tours are available so you can see the current spaces and the challenges they pose – and view preliminary drawings of the proposed renovations.

  • Tuesday, May 7, 5:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 11, 10 a.m.

To sign up for a tour, email

Early voting is available before and after both tours across the parking at the Administrative Services Center.

Here’s a question we’ve heard recently: Why do we need a performing arts space at CMS?

Answer: Currently a multi-purpose room is used for concerts and performing arts at CMS. The picture below is the current space at CMS. The room has poor sightlines for viewers, little storage space and limited seating room. This results in some families being turned away at performances due to lack of space. If the referendum passes, a theater would be added to the building and could also be rented by the community.
