MNCS Graduates featured in Star Tribune

MNCS Graduates featured in this article about the deformed frogs originally found by MNCS students back in 1995.

“The school (MNCS) and the frog project taught us how to think, how to work together to go after answers, take on big issues, speak and write and think outside the box. It really taught us about life, how to stay engaged even when there aren’t nice, tidy answers.” – Becky Pollack

BREAKING NEWS: MNCS Adding More Transportation Options For 2012-13

MNCS will now be offering transportation from Mankato. This is also a big win for our students from St. Peter, who will now have a much shorter bus ride to and from school.

We now transport from the following communities: Mankato, St. Peter, Cleveland, Le Center, Le Sueuer, Gaylord, Gibbon, Winthrop, Arlington, Belle Plaine and rural Henderson.
