Welcome to Minnesota Center!
The Minnesota Center (MNC) is Cambridge-Isanti's optional year-round middle school program located at the Isanti Middle School site. MNC follows a year-round calendar and has been an option for district parents since its founding in 1995. Originally, the school calendar followed a 45 - 15 configuration where students learned for 45 days (nine weeks of school) and were on intersession break for 15 days (three weeks of vacation). That calendar has been modified over the years an currently sutudents have 6 - 8 weeks of school followed by a 1 - 2 week intersessions. The school year starts at the beginning of August and runs through the middle of June.
8th grade students at IMS/MNC had the participate in a “Fatal Vision” exercise during their health class. Students were able to experience the harmful effects of impaired driving. School Resource Officer Adam Gau and Mr. Kolbeck team up in teaching this unit.
