Facilities Addition Moving Forward


A new facilities project was approved by the Board of Education to help address the district’s enrollment growth and dwindling space. The project will include a new secure entryway to Riverside School, as well as the addition of six new classrooms.

The $2.09 million project will be added to the north side of the building, and it will give Riverside and other schools much needed space. Click here to watch a video about it.

6th Annual Brainerd Music Showcase

Tuesday March 31st 7pm Tornstrom

Come to the 6th Annual Brainerd Music Showcase!

Every year the top performing ensembles from BHS (A Cappella Choir, Chamber Orchestra, Wind Symphony) achieve their most advanced music making at the Central Lakes Conference Music Festival. This festival is usually hosted somewhere far away from Brainerd and is not seen by our community. The BHS Music Showcase was born out of a desire to share this music with the community that supports and cares for these students.  Tickets are at the door – $6 for adults, $4 students
