Arrowhead High School's pricey locker room stirs some talk

Wisconsin High School Gets New Locker Room, Cost of 600 Thousand Dollars


HARTLAND, Wis. -Is it worth spending more than $600,000 on a high school locker room?

That's the price tag for the new renovations at Arrowhead High School in Hartland.

According to the Arrowhead Union School District, the total cost was at least $617,000. More than half of the money came from private donors, while the district paid the rest.

One Arrowhead parent told WISN 12 News reporter Terry Sater it's over the top.

Sater spoke to a college scout at the Arrowhead-Kettle Moraine basketball game Thursday night, who told him it's a lot nicer than his college's locker room.

Some Kettle Moraine School District parents would talk about the locker rooms.

"It just seems like a lot of money for a high school locker room," Phil Ekins said.

"We need to keep these kids focused on doing everything we possibly can to lift up everybody in the school district. And I'm sure that money could be spent helping other kids to advance their education," George Fuller said.

Arrowhead's principal didn't return Sater's calls, and the school board president referred him to the superintendent, who Sater was told is out of town until next week.

Sater talked with a female Arrowhead athlete who said they also got new locker room, but it isn't as nice as the boys'.
