About Our Community
Pierz is located off highway 25 in Central Minnesota. It is a small, cozy town 30 minutes south of Brainerd and 30 minutes north of St.Cloud. With an official population of 1,377, we serve a much greater area, as we have many students enrolled from surrounding rural communities: Buckman, Lastrup, Harding, Genola, Onamia, as well as some students from Little Falls and Royalton.
Pierz is in the heart of Central Minnesota and prides itself on its small town atmosphere. The area was originally settled in the 1860's by German Catholics and was incorporated as a town in 1892. Learn more at PierzMn.org
