We are a PreK-Grade 6 school located in northwestern Minnesota 45 miles west of Bemidji on HWY 2.

Our school continues to work on preparing students for the 21st Century by equipping them with the technology skills and resources necessary. We are proud to house a state of the art computer lab with brand new iMac computers as well as provide engaging learning opportunities with iPads and other devices.

Additionally, our school has excellent volunteer coaches that organize extra-curricular opportunities such as football, cross-country, golf, cheer leading, dance, wrestling, basketball, baseball, and more. Fosston is a great place to go to school!
