Welcome to Park Terrace Elementary School in Spring Lake Park! We are one of three elementary schools serving Spring Lake Park Schools' students in grades preK-4.
Each student at Park Terrace 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.
Many portions of Park Terrace 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 Spring Lake Park Schools. Learn more about our SLP stories and voices and what makes us #SLPPPantherProud.

In order to personalize learning, you really have to think about what this child need and every child needs love and compassion and encouragement. I let them know that it's totally okay to do whatever they need to do to continue to move forward because you can't stop until you're proud.
At Park Terrace, our approach to personalized learning helps students discover their unique strengths, interests and needs as a learner and find joy in learning.
Our kids are from all over the world, and so we have this amazing blend of all these different ethnicities where we have this opportunity to really celebrate these differences and then it makes us so much stronger.
With Learner Profiles, I’m getting students to think about – what do you want to be? What is a dream? What do you like? What is a challenge? We have the conversation one-to-one so they’re really telling me about themselves, which is important to understand each child individually.

I am PANTHER PROUD of the wonderful students that walk our halls each day, showing the staff how to think deeper, care with their whole hearts, and refuse to sink!
