Welcome to Central Middle School

The White Bear Lake Area School District builds quality lives and strong communities through compassion, integrity, respect, responsibility and service.

Central is one of two middle schools in the White Bear Lake Area School District.  One of our unique physical characteristics is that we are the site of the old junior high, and we are adjacent to the original high school in White Bear Lake from the 1930s.  We are proud of the historical aspect of our building, which is located close to downtown and resides in a residential neighborhood.
