Welcome to Centerview Elementary School in Blaine! We are one of three elementary schools serving Spring Lake Park Schools' students in grades preK-4.
Centerview Elementary School is the district’s newest school, opening in September 2018, serving students in preK-4.
Each student at Centerview Elementary School is known by name, strength, interest and need, leading to personalized student work and learning experiences.
All elementary students in Spring Lake Park Schools spend 120 minutes each day on reading instruction with 60 minutes in smaller groups focused on specific student needs.
We continue to expand our STEM learning for each student in Spring Lake Park Schools. We are redesigning traditional learning experiences and transforming our classrooms to help our students become creators, designers, inventors, thinkers and leaders.
One of our top priorities is to maintain low class sizes. Our class sizes at elementary grade levels are among the lowest in the metro area and among neighboring districts.
Amazing things are happening every day at Centerview Elementary School – learn more about our Centerview stories and voices.
First grade teacher, Centerview
No year is the same, no class is the same, no lesson is the same and certainly no student is the same. Everyday, plans change based on what I learned the previous day about my students. It's important to be flexible and find ways to let the students guide the ship sometimes.
"What makes me SLP Panther Proud is the commitment and opportunity to work in partnership with students, families, staff and our community."
The best part of my day is when the doors open in the morning and students come running in! It's great to see that kids are so excited to be here each day and that they want to get to their class as quick as they can!
Academic Specialist, Centerview
Knowing what the students can and cannot do really drives my instruction. As a reading teacher, I make goals with my students, and we base them on what skills the student is interested in developing as readers. This means everyone in the group has a tailored goal that they are working toward.
Everyday I strive to be the best person, friend and teacher that I can be. I set high expectations for myself, knowing that I am capable of excellence, and I wanted to foster the same belief in all of my students.
