Building Our Future
White Bear Lake Area Schools Facilities Process
On November 5, 2019, White Bear Lake Area School District voters approved a $326 million building bond request to address building needs across the district by a margin of 57.4% yes to 42.6% (unofficial results: 8,536 yes votes, 6,336 no votes). The bond funding will be used to:
- address projected enrollment growth throughout the district;
- provide safe, secure and healthy learning environments for all students through investments in our aging facilities and infrastructure;
- increase opportunities for students by creating a single unified grades 9-12 high school;
- and create flexibly-designed learning spaces to support student-centered instruction
At the February 13, 2023 School Board Regular Meeting, the White Bear Lake Area School Board approved a committee’s recommendation to change the name of Sunrise Park Middle School when it moves from the Sunrise Park neighborhood to the current White Bear Lake Area High School - South Campus building in the fall of 2024. The new name, Mariner Middle School, is a nod to the District’s past.
