Birch Lake is one of nine elementary schools in the White Bear School District. One of our really special characteristics is that we are the only circular elementary building within the district. We are a neighborhood school located right next to beautiful Birch Lake in a well-established, friendly, diverse community rich in traditions.

Our School

Birch Lake combines experience with passion, commitment, rigor and vision to create an excellent learning environment that is welcoming and safe for everyone. The staff is united and student-centered to help each child achieve their fullest potential.


Birch Lake students exemplify White Bear's standards of excellence. Whether sharing exciting discoveries in the classroom, reaching a personal best, or developing friendships on the playground, they are constantly learning and growing while enjoying school.


Our Birch Lake Families and volunteers are an essential part of our school community. They give continuously and truly are our partners in preparing our students to be successful in an ever changing global world.


Partnerships are one way the learning is enriched for all students.  Since the fall of 2006, MacPhail has partnered with Birch Lake to provide an amazing range of musical opportunities for our students, including whole-group instruction in grades K-1 and individual lessons in grades 2-5.  We also have a partnership with the White Bear Center for the Arts. We are very thankful and appreciative for everything that they provide and offer our students in the areas of art.

Please feel free to stop by because everyone is welcome at Birch Lake Elementary School!
