Loved St. Louis Park. As a student now at St. Olaf College, I look back on my experience as nothing but excellent. I took either AP, IB or Honors classes every year, and was very challenged and learned a lot. The teachers are fantastic. Lots of opportunities to participate. Managed to do 3 sports, be on Student Council and NHS as well as writing and editing for the Echo, the school newspaper which is the #1 paper in the state. Student life is rich and diverse. The diversity is one of the best parts of the student body. You encounter a large spectrum of people, which enhances the experience. I am proud to be an alumnus to this school!

I went to Park schools from 5th to 9th grade and my grades where at their worst and i had the least amount of friends than any other school I have been to. the kids are mean and stuck up. even people who are your 'friends' talk bad about you. and the teachers care nothing about, the students(some do). i needed i IEP, and they never helped me get one or even helped find another way to keep my grades up. The school i go to now gave me an IEP right away and i have a 4.0 GPA and i am in all honors and AP classes. SLP is not a good school. its hard, and not in the good way.

Great Teachers! After being in college for a couple years, I have nothing but respect for my high school teachers. They made sure my education was a solid foundation for my future.

its a great place to learns and is basically ahead of the game. i have taken my kids to all kids of schools. from charter, public, and even online homeschooling. but when St. Louis Park High School, not only did they do better in school, they were soooo much happier. I'm the kind of parent that wants the best for her children and will not stop until she finds the absolute best school for them. And I have found it. St.Lous Park Senior High School. Also, please don't put your kids in an online school, I've seen it and my children were completely miserable. If you want the absolute best for you child, with a extremely safe environment, take them to SLPHS.

I think SLPHS is the best thing thats happened to my kids. I have tried everything. I've taken them to other public schools, private schools, charter and even K12/MNVA online homeschools. But nothing has come close to SLPHS. Its amazing how you can take AP classes in the school and get college credit for it. Their grades are excellent and they actually like to do work now. I love seeing them so happy. If you are a parent that wants nothing but the best for your children and will do anything for them to get a great education, in an extremely safe, non-violent environment, take them to SLPHS. Also, I found that online school is the worst thing for kids. If you think that keeping them in the house and from the outside world is going to help them, its not. Homeschool/online school doesnt work. Trust me, I know.

This school is actually ahead of the game in discussing changes that make the learning experience for all students a more positive one. Still, recent test score will attest to how students of color have been excluded from the school's model of academic excellence. The new principal seems willing to discuss ways to address this issue, but as a parent, during my two-year interaction I have only been able to indentify a couple of teachers who are able to engage students who are not walking through their doors with a zest for learning. Without engagement, which is more challenging with many students during adolescent and young adult years, a student will not fair well, even with lots of family support. Yet positive change appears to be on the horizon, but too little and -- for many students and families, particularly those of color at SLPHS -- too late.

We give SLPHS an A+. I am a single-parent,low income and left Minneapolis because the standards were academically/behaviorally abysmal. SLPSH teachers were hard on my daughter like all the other kids. SLPSH gives equal opportunity to all kids who want to learn and parents who value a free, top-notch education.

St. Louis Park Senior High is a great place to learn and succeed. It has high quality academics, rated at 305th of all public schools in the nation, one of only 3 out of Minnesota. It aslo has strong athletics and extracurriculars. As St. Louis Park Public Schools say and do, 'Achieving success, one student at a time.'

'No Child Left Behind' is a catchy phrase with absolutely no credibility - if your child functions well on their own with little need for hands on, this school is okay...not great...however if your child struggles, this is not the place for him/her. My youngest child 'was left behind' and the teachers, counselors and administrative staff were perfectly fine with this. If I had not taken a year off of work to extensively tudor my own child, she would never have graduated. There is tremendous parental support of sporting and extracurricular events along with day to day volunteering in the school, however if this were not the case this school would fail miserably. Discipline is non-existant. Think twice about enrolling your student, especially the ones needing extra attention.

First off, I think there is a certain level of parental involvement that makes St. Louis Park as fabulous as it is. Art programs are growing, music is abounding (and beautiful), the whole school cheers on its athletes together, and the extracurricular activities are countless. This school knows how to make a positive experience out of an education. Any student who gives a good effort to continue in their academic rigor will be successful and any student who isn't so motivated has many options. To truly be 'left behind', a student would really need to work at it because the staff at St. Louis Park High School is top-notch. The academics at this school are extremely well-respected and challenging for students at all levels. As for the supposed fights at the school-- welcome to America. Look at any High School. SLP is a safe school in a safe suburb.

I recomend all parents who plan to enroll your child in this school to do some serious questioning and call the police dept. to inquire on the fights and violence. There is extreme violence happening and these students are allowed to come right back. Also a lot of gangs colors and want a be thugs not coming to be educated but to fight and do drugs. Last week there were several extreme fights. Also students not even attending this school allowed to hang out in the halls. The School board claims comapssion for these peole as they continue to loose good students.

This school is horrible. They claim they are all about the 'no child left behind' saying. My child was left behind. She was in the hospital for a while and when she got back the staff did nothing help her get back on track. They just basically stuck her in special Ed and marked her off as 'Stupid' because she was not up to speed with the other students. There is a reason they call them selfs a school of excellence. It is because all of the students that need help are hidden away so that the school can put all their effort in to the star students that have not been hit with bad events in their life or their parents work in the school system.
