2018-2019 Registration Information
Registering for the 2018-2019 school year at Spring Lake Park High School
Welcome to Spring Lake Park High School and the 2018-2019 school year. Our purpose at Spring Lake Park High School is to prepare each student for a lifetime of success, which includes preparation for both college and career. It is estimated that the typical high school graduate will have 10-14 career changes by the age of 40. This means that every graduate must be skillfully prepared to both train and retrain once they leave high school, and embark on the next leg of your journey toward post-secondary success and engagement.
As you review this registration information, think carefully about selecting courses that will both challenge and interest you. It is important you begin to have educational experiences in high school that develop your understanding of what interests you and how you learn best, so you are prepared to continue to learn beyond Spring Lake Park high school. Think about the courses and grades as they will appear on your high school transcript and how this will reflect the efforts and interests of your high school years and your preparation for a lifetime of successes.
Please take the time to read this registration guide thoroughly; discuss it with your parents or guardians and carefully select courses that will best prepare you for a successful future. The course selections you make now will help us plan for next school year so please choose carefully. On behalf of the entire administrative team, I wish you the best in the coming school year.
