Welcome to Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine! We are one of three elementary schools in Spring Lake Park Schools serving grades in preK-4.
Each student at Northpoint 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.
We are collectively committed to designing engaging learning experiences that lead to each student earning 12 college credits by the end of 12th grade.
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.
Parts of Northpoint have been redesigned to provide flexible learning environments that allow teachers to meet the varied needs and interests of students.
Amazing things are happening every day at Northpoint Elementary School – learn more about our Northpoint stories and voices.
I am #SLPPantherProud because of our children, families and co-workers who all inspire, challenge, push and support me! I am also so excited by the technology - not just electronically but new and innovative ideas we use to engage our students.
Panther Pride is alive and well!
It is really exciting to work in a school district where teachers are given opportunities to design engaging lessons for our student population. We are encouraged and expected to try new things daily.
I really feel Northpoint is a special place. We want to get to know each child not only by name, but by interest, strength, need and how they best learn.
We are constantly pausing to ask questions and reflect to create a better learning community for our kiddos- and that's something to be #SLPPantherProud about!
