We are excited to welcome the Class of 2034. Learning is personal and as your child begins their formal, classroom learning journey, we anticipate discovering with them their strengths, interests and needs. 

More than our small class sizes, modern and flexible learning spaces and focus on career, college and life readiness, we are committed to helping each student discover their joy in learning. Take some time to get to know Spring Lake Park Schools and know we are looking forward to getting to know you.
