Starting in fall 2011, Ramstad students have attended classes at the Minot Municipal Auditorium. "Ramstad at the Aud," as it is familiarly known, utilizes space in the auditorium itself, but also in temporary classroom units connected together in the parking area to the north of the auditorium.

By early 2012, the Minot School District had determined that Ramstad was not salvageable after the flood. The Board of Education ultimately made the decision that it would be best to rebuild the school from scratch at a location on North Hill, so that there would be no danger of experiencing a third major flood, despite the Federal Emergency Management Administration's refusal to cover the full cost of construction at a new location.
