Welcome to Pipestone Area Middle School/High School
Home of the Pipestone Area Arrows!
Mr. Cory Strasser, MS/HS Principal
At Pipestone Middle
School we offer a first class education that challenges students to achieve high standards, provides unique learning opportunities, and prepares students for life after high school. The staff is dedicated, well-trained and excited about providing a world class education. Our student body is active in their school and proud of their accomplishments. You will find an exciting curriculum that utilizes cutting edge technology and innovations to improve the way we conduct learning. I welcome you to our website and school.
Our district is continuing with Professional Learning Communities (PLC's). These PLC's allow our teaching staff to collaborate with the purpose of improving instruction and student learning. PLC's take place every Wednesday morning. That means there is a later start time for our students. School starts at 8:45 AM on Wednesdays. Buses and breakfast remain the same so there are no changes there.
Pipestone Area Middle/High School is one combined building and operates on seven 50-minute periods. Students have access to the latest technology. A full service library along with multiple PC labs and two iPod mobile labs are available. Each classroom is equipped with a Smart Board and corresponding software and technology. PAS’s modern facilities include a 1775 seat gymnasium, 200 seat auxiliary gymnasium, 630 seat auditorium, an attached community library and school wide wireless internet access for both school use and guest use.
