St. Louis Park High School has a significantly higher opt-out rate than our neighboring school districts. We want to help staff, families, and students understand how these tests can benefit students and schools and how opting out can actually have unintended negative impacts.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Aquila, Peter Hobart and Susan Lindgren are officially authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to provide all students a rigorous and diverse education through the IB Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP). In January of 2016, St. Louis Park Middle School was designated as an IB World School, and St. Louis Park High School offers IB courses for students 16 to 19.
Due to severe winter weather, St. Louis Park Public Schools will be adjusting dismissal times by 20 minutes today, Nov. 29, 2022 for elementary schools, the high school and early learning students who receive transportation.

When you have a moment, please review the contents of this publication as it contains information about supply lists, transportation, nutrition services, and upcoming summer events.
Additionally, I want to remind you about the upcoming August 9 Special Election. St. Louis Park Public Schools will have two questions on the ballot for this upcoming election. Both questions focus on items that will enhance the daily lived experience of students, stabilize costs and conserve energy, maintain core operations, and improve safety and security.
