Sartell is great town to raise a family. It is relatively small but growing. There is a variety of places to live, from affordable apartments to luxury houses. Sartell does lack a good shopping center, but with St. Cloud so close, it isn't the end of the world. The town has available land, so more stores may start to pop up over time. There are parks all over the town, featuring playgrounds, walking trails, gardens, and so on.

Sartell has an awesome community feeling aspect. You can go to the store and know multiple people just from around town. They have an awesome school district and it is a wonderful place for kids to grow up!
Growing up in Sartell, Minnesota was a gift. I am so thankful to have taken full advantage of all of the opportunities that Sartell provided for me. Throughout the state of Minnesota the Sartell school district is fairly well known and ranks high consistently on numerous lists and comparisons between it and other school districts. The proximity that Sartell has to St. Cloud and other surrounding cities make it the ideal city for a family that desires the ability to live near nature but work in the city. The city itself is well loved by its inhabitants and looks gorgeous no matter what season it is through upkeep programs and the city council. Activity wise there is no shortage of activities for people of all ages to enjoy. During the summer month, for example, there are many races, concerts, and town festivals put on by local businesses.
