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.
Academic Specialist, Northpoint
The best part of my day is connecting with the kids in my small groups.
We had so many reasons to be SLP Panther Proud this fall with nearly daily achievements by high school students involved in athletics, co-curricular activities and fine arts.
Where we’ve been, where we’re going as we help each student become a mathematician
Last fall, Spring Lake Park Schools partnered with InClass Today, an organization that has proven success in reducing chronic absenteeism in other school districts across the country. Again this year, students in grades 6-12 who fall into our chronic absenteeism criteria will receive an absence report in the mail. These reports will be sent beginning Friday, November 29.
Through assemblies at Park Terrace Elementary and Centerview Elementary, letter writing, wreath making and a variety of other activities, Spring Lake Park Schools students across the district learned what it means to be a Veteran and recognized those who have and are currently serving our country.
Winter weather will soon be here. To ensure families get the information they need around school closings or delays, or other emergency information, we will be conducting a test of our district notification system on Tuesday, November 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Three Spring Lake Park School Board seats were on the Tuesday, November 5 General Election ballot. The two incumbents running, Amy Hennen and Tony Easter, have been reelected to the school board, and Sarah Bowe of Blaine, joins the board as its newest member.
