Welcome from Superintendent Astein Osei
St. Louis Park Public Schools has had a long tradition of academic excellence and innovation, welcoming learning environments, and high levels of access to co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. I am committed to continuing and building upon the strong traditions in these areas in order to provide our students a safe and nurturing environment that energizes and enhances the spirit.It is exciting to contribute to St. Louis Park Public Schools’ mission objective to ensure all students will achieve the knowledge, skills, passion and attitudes to meet or exceed rigorous academic standards, without demographically predictable results, in order to succeed in their future. Our mission and core values are what drew me to the district, as I am a firm believer in students contributing to community, engaging in lifelong learning, and having access to learning experiences that acknowledge their cultural and racial identity.As your Superintendent, I am proud to be part of a mission driven district where we challenge all learners to meet high standards and offer multiple pathways to excellence. I am looking forward to a positive and productive school year for all of our learners in St. Louis Park Public Schools!
