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.

Sartell is a very friendly area with great schools and a variety of activities to keep you busy. I have lived here my entire life. The neighborhoods are family friendly and welcoming. There are great restaurants and places to do activities such as the bowling alley, and the community center. There are also plenty of opportunities to catch a sporting event either at the high school or Bernicks Arena.
Sartell was a great place to grow up. It is a small town but not too small, as it seems like it is always growing. I had a great experience in school from elementary all the way through high school. There are many opportunities to get involved. I played two sports in high school and that allowed me to really connect and become close to a good number of people in my school and in the community.
