Byron Primary School

Byron, MN | Education


To accommodate a growing community and projected future enrollment needs, the Byron Public School District expanded its school facilities.


A new primary school for PreK-2 would allow the existing elementary school to become an intermediate school for grades 3-5 and the middle school to serve grades 6-8.


In 2014, the Byron community approved a bond issue to construct a new $20.6 million PreK-2 Primary school to complement the existing elementary school and over-crowded middle school. The education team worked with the Byron Public Schools core planning team to design a facility to support its 500 current students and accommodate future growth.

With nearly 98,000 sq. ft., Byron Primary School divides each grade into its own pod with locker bays, flexible learning classrooms, and open areas for collaborative teaching. Additional facility amenities include a gymnasium, kitchen, and cafeteria. A unique feature of the PreK-2 school is the installation of two 13’ tall bear sculptures at the entrance of the school. The District and community wanted to keep the tradition going, as there is an iconic bear sculpture at the entrance of Byron High School, which is a beloved landmark in the community.
