The site is located approximately one mile from Seneca High School along Wells Highway and is in close proximity to all three elementary schools. The site, with a total cost of $1,784,400, consists of the following parcels with respective sellers:

The purchase has been a long process but is “well worth the wait” according to Mr. Steve Hanvey, Associate Superintendent of Administration. Mr. Hanvey said, “We are glad to have this done and are looking forward to moving forward in the process.”
Dr. Thorsland said, “Like I said a few weeks ago, this is a huge step in what has been a long process. This is great news for our district. The employees at Seneca Middle School have patiently waited a long time for this; we are thrilled for them and for the future students that will attend.”
