It’s true, the long wait is finally over! After sitting vacant for seven years, the Shingle Creek Elementary School building has a new owner and a new purpose. KIPP Stand Academy announced it’s moving to their new campus at the 5034 Oliver Ave. N site this summer. This building, formerly Shingle Creek Elementary School, was closed by Minneapolis Public Schools in 2007. The District approved sale of the vacant property this past fall to the Minnetonka Funding Group (MFG) with the caveat that it lease the property to an approved school partner.
