Children’s Performing Arts

Children’s Performing Arts works with children from the Forest Lake area to help them grow as artists.  Established in 2005, Children’s Performing Arts is a structured theater arts program for elementary aged children (kindergarten through sixth grade), serving over 110 children annually.  Unlike traditional community theaters, all children who register can participate.

Lakes International Language Academy

Lakes International Language Academy (LILA) offers a tuition-free educational opportunity for Minnesota students that merges Spanish or Mandarin immersion instruction with an accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme curriculum for kindergarten through 5th grade. A fee-based preschool for ages 3 and 4, called Kinder Prep, also offers a language-infused learning experience that incorporates introductory immersion experiences and an IB-based curriculum.

LILA’s Upper School provides a unique curriculum with a strong language-acquisition component based on the IB instructional model for 6th through 12th grades. Upper School students are welcome from any district, regardless of their second-language proficiency. Some Upper School students take immersion Spanish or Mandarin courses; others begin their second-language studies at LILA. Most Upper School courses are offered in English and the school’s curriculum meets Minnesota education standards. Like LILA Lower School, LILA Upper School does not charge tuition to Minnesota students.

Forest Lake Area Schools

The Forest Lake Area School District has worked hard to design a quality educational system that prepares students for the world.

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 Degree), 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 extra-curricular activities, gifted education offerings and a full range of special education programming.
