About Forest Lake School District #831
The Forest Lake Area School District 831 is located 30 miles north of the Twin Cities, along the I-35 corridor that runs north to Duluth. It is an area dotted by lakes, rolling hills, woods, and small towns. Many residents enjoy our rural, small-town life and find they can easily commute to the Twin Cities Area. The academic efforts of our students are supported by excellent teachers (67% of our staff have earned a Masters's Degree), a challenging curriculum, technology, high standards, and a safe learning environment.
The school district's strong traditional academic program is enhanced by award-winning co-curricular and extracurricular activities, gifted education offerings, and a full range of special education programming. As the largest employer in the area, Forest Lake Area School District employs over 1,200 persons, including teachers, clerical staff, aides, custodians, bus drivers, cooks, mechanics, and administrators.
