White Bear Lake Area High School - South Campus Reviews

My experience at White Bear Lake Area High School is great! I had a lot of experiences working with students, but also had the opportunity to ask my teachers questions. The teachers continue to challenge their students to a higher level, but also make the material doable. Each teacher encourages their students to learn whether it may be from listening to their students struggles or by giving lessons that correlate to the material about life. There are many ways to get involved, for example by being in clubs such as ambassadors, athletic club, art club, etc. There are lots of resources to go to if help is needed; for example, your counselor, tutors and career pathway coordinators. There are a variety of classes students could take which helps to provide students with more knowledge on what they want to do after school. There are also events that are exciting such as prom, homecoming, and etc. overall, high school was a struggle but a good learning experience.

I overall have had a good experience at school. I've had great teachers, especially this past year, and the White Bear school and community spirit is awesome. I am excited for the future students as the new 4-year campus is being built! Go Bears!
Academics at South Campus are very good. They always score higher than the district AND state average. There are many extracurricular options, but performances in sports are subpar. There is a large variety for those who like the arts, and the school has an extremely strong theater program. The counselors have no function other than to make your paperwork and decisions difficult. Also, South Campus is a primarily Caucasian dominated school, which does harbor some hostility towards LGBT, those of lower economic class, and person's of color. I really want to see this change. The school is on the right path, as diversity has been greatly increased these past couple years. There is still much to do, however.
