District #12 Timeline

School District #12 has roots dating back to April of 1853 when the Manomin School District was created. It included the cities of Anoka, Blaine, Fridley, Grow, Ham Lake, Ramsey Township and part of Moundsview. The first recorded school in what is now the Centennial District was housed in the F.X. LaValle home in 1854 in Centerville. In 1880, Francis Golden held school in her kitchen, which was near what is now Golden Lake in Circle Pines.
On January 1, 1956, District 48 (Lovell - with 20 classrooms and 890 pupils) and District 5 (Centerville - with eight classrooms and 280 pupils) consolidated. Each district consisted of just one school building. In 1957 a superintendent was hired for the new school district. During the summer of 1957, a $700,000 bond issue was passed to build a junior-senior high school.

History of Individual Schools

There have been schools in the area since the mid-1800's. The first recorded school was in Centerville; then a school was established near Golden Lake. At one time Centerville was a grade 1-12 school. As the population grew, high school students were sent to White Bear, while the Golden Lake school sent its older students to Anoka, and later, to Minneapolis.
