Welcome to Spring Lake Park Schools! We are a vibrant school community serving about 6,200 students from suburbs in the northern Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area.
Each student in Spring Lake Park Schools is known by name, strength, interest and need, leading to personalized student work and learning experiences.
We continue to expand our science, technology, engineering and mathematics learning and redesign traditional learning experiences to help our students become creators, designers, inventors, thinkers and leaders.
Our goal for each student is simple – 12 college-level credits by the end of 12th grade, or 12x12. We offer a variety of ways for students to achieve this goal and leave high school with college credits.
Unleashing teacher creativity using our 3D Design process creates learning experiences that are meaningful, engaging and enhance student success.
The district is well-positioned for the future as a result of strong fiscal management from the school board and district administration.
Our class sizes at all grade levels are among the lowest in the metro area and neighboring districts. We prioritize investing in teaching and specialist positions to maintain low class sizes.
Each day we live our core values as we work with our learners and each other to advance a plan focused on success for each student.
