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 Park Terrace Elementary School – learn more about our Park Terrace stories and voices.
