For our Neighborhood Schools, students live within designated attendance boundaries that cover all areas in the White Bear Lake Area School District. You may confirm your neighborhood school assignment at the District map, or by contacting the District Enrollment Center at 651-407-7674. You may choose a school outside your neighborhood attendance area, but normally you would need to provide transportation for your student. In addition, all White Bear Lake Area Schools are open to students from outside the school district under the provisions of the State of Minnesota open enrollment laws. We welcome any families interested in our schools to contact us for more information.
