Community School Highlights

  • A letter from the principal:

    Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  I’m thrilled to welcome you back to in person learning!  It’s truly an honor to be the principal of our Forest Lake Area Community School.  I’m privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make a smooth transition for our students. 

    Our Community School is a special place to learn and grow.  We are proud of our school and have high expectations for each and every student.  Our students are kind, compassionate and inquisitive.  Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted and safe. Our mission to foster a positive and rigorous learning environment, along with many opportunities to prepare students for the future, will guide us throughout the school year.  Our goal is to encourage active student engagement to develop a lifetime love for learning.

    Partnering with families is essential to the success of our school community.  We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following the Community School and district websites for important information. Also, families can reach out to us directly with any questions or concerns.
