BPS 150


In January 2023, Brainerd Public Schools began the celebration of its 150 years (1873-2023) of providing public education as a school district.

Initially, education was only provided within the city limits of Brainerd. By order of the Minnesota legislature, country schools, and smaller school districts were consolidated into the Brainerd Public Schools.

Today, Brainerd Public Schools is spread across 516 square miles, including Cass, Crow Wing, and Morrison Counties, and serves more than 6,700 students annually. Brainerd Public Schools has six elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, and three alternative programming sites.
