Prepare to Show Ranger Pride when Relocating to Forest Lake MN!

Real Estate Agent with Boardman Realty Minnesota License#90858

FLHSMost Minnesotans have no idea how large the Forest Lake Independent School District #831 is. There are many communities and neighborhoods that make up this north metro Twin Cities school district with the motto: Inspire the Learner...Ignite the Potential!

Located 35 minutes northeast of the downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, the Forest Lake School district is geographically huge. Covering one of the largest areas in the state with over 240 square miles of area, Forest Lake schools are the educational home of 12 communities in 3 different counties. Students come from Columbus, East Bethel, Ham Lake, Lino Lakes, Linwood in Anoka County. Other attendees are from Wyoming and Stacy in Chisago County. Many children are from homes in New Scandia Township, Forest Lake, Hugo, Marine on the St. Croix or May Township in Washington County.

As a REALTOR® in the north metro Twin Cities suburbs, I have sold a number of homes within the District #831. Many residents love the fact that the schools are structured with kindergarten through 6th grade in the elementary, 7-9 grades in the junior highs and 10-12th grades in the senior high. It may be "old school" but preferred by many in the area.

There is one high school, Forest Lake High School. Students show Ranger pride by wearing maroon and gold as they attend classes on newly modified five period schedule. There are programs for college bound and vocational students alike. Advanced placement classes, advanced technical/vocational classes and College in the Schools are popular programs at FLHS. Since the school serves so many attendees who live on acreage, it comes as no surprise that agricultural classes is a popular choice with many students. To give you an idea of just one of the outstanding programs just check out the house that Forest Lake High School Students built! With awarding winning sports, theater, speech, music and other extra curricular activities, there is no end to Ranger Pride!

There are two junior high schools, serving grades 7th through 9th, in the heart of Forest Lake. Century Junior High is located across from the high school on highway 97 and Southwest Junior High is on 10th street just south of the business district. CLICK HERE for a PDF map showing current school boundary locations.

There are 8 traditional community elementary schools and one tuition-free Montessori school that are a part of the Forest Lake district. Columbus Elementary, Forest Lake Elementary, Forest View Elementary, Lino Lakes Elementary, Linwood Elementary, Scandia Elementary and Wyoming Elementary are all schools in district #831. Six of the eight schools have been named Minnesota Schools of Excellence. Central Montessori is one of the gems of the district. It provides public elementary education based on Montessori teaching methods and is available tuition-free to all elementary students in the Forest Lake district.

Terry--Interesting...The Forest Lake High School Colors are Maroon and Gold just like the University of Minnesota. What does the Forest Hills School use as it's mascot? FLHS ran a contest to design a new one but only came up with a big maroon and gold R. The ranger name came from the surrounding forest land and proximity of the high school to Carlos Avery as a forest ranger. They wanted to update the image but couldn't come up with anything.

Terry--Interesting that two schools so far away from each other would have a forest ranger mascot isn't it?
