White Bear High School – A Century Later

In 1918 construction began on the very first White Bear High School building and in 1919 it was complete. For several decades the building served students as first the high school, then Central Junior High and today as the White Bear Lake District Center offices attached to Central Middle School.  Join us to see photos of the transformation of the building and hear stories of some of its students as we celebrate 100 years of White Bear High.
