Education[edit]

Students in the Wimbledon area attend Barnes County North Public School, which is located two miles west of Leal, North Dakota. Around 300 students are enrolled in the Barnes County North School District. The district covers Courtenay, Dazey, Eckelson, Rogers, Sanborn, Spiritwood, Spiritwood Lake, Urbana, Walum, and Wimbledon. Prior to 2007, there were three separate school districts: North Central of Barnes north of Rogers (K-12), Wimbledon-Courtenay in Wimbledon (K-12), and Spiritwood in Spiritwood (K-6). In 2007, the three districts merged into the Barnes County North School District. From 2007 to 2012, the three schools (North Central Campus, Wimbledon-Courtenay Campus, and Spiritwood Campus) operated as they had before the merger. In 2013, the Spiritwood Campus was closed, and the North Central Campus housed preschool through fifth grade, while the Wimbledon-Courtenay Campus housed grades 6-12. In 2014, construction of the centralized facility was completed, and the remaining two facilities were closed, and all students in the district began attending the new Barnes County North Public School.
