Greetings and welcome to Battle Lake Public School! Our school is truly an amazing place! We have the finest staff and students in Western Minnesota and our recent string of awards has placed our school in the spotlight for exemplary education in both the state and nation! Among the many distinctions include:

For 6 consecutive years, Battle Lake High School was named a Minnesota Reward School. There are only 14 schools out of a total of approximately 800 in the state that accomplished this milestone each year. Battle Lake High School was the only Public High School in the state of Minnesota to receive this award for 6 consecutive years.

  • Battle Lake District - National Blue Ribbon School for 2014 (This is the highest national honor.)

  • Battle Lake Elementary School - National Blue Ribbon School 2011 (This is the highest national honor.)

  • Battle Lake High School - routinely listed as U.S. News & World Reports America's Best High Schools. 

  • Battle Lake High School - Star of Innovation School from the MASSP.

  • Battle Lake Public Schools - Spotlight School from Minnesota Academic Excellence Foundation.

Our school’s values are what many might consider to be old-fashioned – academic rigor, hard work, integrity, responsibility, accountability, respect and compassion. We still believe in those and feel they are essential to raising kids that will become productive citizens. We pair that value-system with an ever-evolving, innovative and engaging curriculum that will prepare our graduates to compete in today’s global job market.

Our facility is top-notch with a breathtaking auditorium and recently remodeled science wing. We are a 1:1 district that issues Chromebooks to every student 2nd grade - 12th grade for enhanced learning experiences, classrooms equipped with Smart Boards and interactive panel technology, a CNC milling machine, an iPad lab, and we are one of the first schools in the region to have multiple 3-D printers dedicated to student learning. We also maintain some of the finest athletic facilities for a school of our size including an all-weather track.

We are very proud of our school and community. If you are looking for the idyllic charm of small town living in one of the most beautiful areas of the United States. If you are looking for a school system that is nationally recognized for excellence. If you would enjoy living in a progressive community with a growing list of amenities - please consider Battle Lake. I would enjoy the opportunity to talk with you about the educational opportunities available at Battle Lake and how our school can best meet the needs of your child!

Warmest Regards,
