I am SLP Panther Proud because Spring Lake Park Schools has offered me a lot of opportunities to get involved in activities and succeed. Also because there are a number of staff members who have mentored me and supported me in my years here at SLP.– Simon Tewalt, Class of 2020

What makes me SLP Panther Proud is how our school is trying to change education in order to provide more real-world learning experiences. Specifically, I like how SLP is branching out with the new Career and College Pathway Programs to expose students to careers in teaching, medicine, engineering, business and more.

– Sophia Anderson, Class of 2020

"The community and culture at Spring Lake Park Schools makes me SLP Panther Proud. The staff and students work together to cultivate a positive atmosphere that allows students to flourish during their time at Spring Lake Park and beyond. The opportunities and experiences that SLP has offered me have opened doors and new possibilities that otherwise I would not have known existed. I am proud to have been able to be a Panther."
