Como has been thought of as a hidden treasure in the district. In some ways it is a very plain school, but it has something very special about it. Possibly owing to it's relatively small size, Como has a well developed sense of community. There is something for everyone, and if what you want is not there, the staff is flexible about creating new clubs and classes. Known as "the AP school" of St. Paul, Como has a very diverse population, so students get to know how to function together. Some awesome things about Como? our Ultimate Frisbee Team, Girls APP group, FIRST Robotics, InspireMN Ideas Festival, and more. This year both soccer, nordic, and debate went to state. The musicals are top notch. My daughter had an excellent experience their and will be graduating from NYU Abu Dhabi. She would not be the self-confident, well-rounded young person she is without Como.

An excellent school with outstanding teachers, strong academics, and hard working students. There are more AP classes (18) at this school than most of the private or public schools in the area. Other honors courses (called accelerated or pre-AP) are also of excellent quality and open to all students. High academic honors including National Merit Scholars, AP Scholars, and college scholarship recipients come from this school. The smaller school feel enables teachers to know the students, and for students to participate in a wide range of activities such as sports, academics, music, and clubs--without having to specialize. My son has been able to participate in sports, music, state and national academic competitions, and community service through Como. The students are from very diverse backgrounds, which make for a lively, enriching learning environment. My son formerly attended a private, more homogeneous school, which he found stifling. He loves the school and has thrived there.

Wow how sad parents don't understand what goes on in the school. Kids fight each other in the hallways. Segregation in the lunch room. Some are homophobic and some most likely to drop out. Public schools are failing our children.

I have to say that going to Como Park was such a great experience. You meet so many people from all walks of life. During my time at Como I really have to say that the students as well as many staff members were better than I had imagined. Like many schools there are flaws at Como and I will be the first to say so, but over all Como Park is such a wonderful place to be. The four years I spent there really taught me a lot about myself and the world. And that is something I will take with me where ever I go and for the rest of my life. Is Como Park High School a school I would want my children to go to? YES, Absolutely YES.

I graduated from Como Park and now my son is, the differences from then until now aren't very significant except in security. As much as its a relief to hear that they have high security in place its still very sad that they have to have it at all. Nothing like when I went there in mid 80's. It goes with the times I guess, which is all very disheartening.

This is a very good school. There is no crime at all. The kids are not bad.
