About St. Louis Park Middle School
A Message from Our Principals
Whether you are new to our school family or returning for another year, I look forward to living our school motto with you as we “Create. Engage. Ignite.”
The 2021-22 school year is both an exciting and transformative time for all students. We strive to create an environment dedicated to the education and development of each person. The goal is both academic and social in nature.
Over the years our curriculum has been updated to reflect the changing needs of our learners to ensure students move towards being ready for the rigors of high school.
St. Louis Park Middle School is proud to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. This curriculum model promotes inquiry and transdisciplinary learning while creating a system for academic excellence and achievement for all. What does that really mean? Students will learn about the world within and outside of St. Louis Park, they will build connections between academic content areas, and they will become caring and thoughtful young adults as they chart a course for their future.
In addition to the IB-MYP, we offer a variety of elective courses to engage all learners and help them identify their “spark” or interest area that will propel them to future education, college and career success.
St. Louis Park Middle School enrolls approximately 1,000 students annually in Grades 6-8, and much like the city, we are proud of our small town feel with “big city” resources, connections, and experiences. We pride ourselves on being inclusive, welcoming, and respectful to all who enter our school.
To our parents and guardians – the middle school years are an exciting time for you as you watch your children transition from elementary school and prepare for high school. Please know that we are here to support you at every step! We have an active Site Council of parents and staff members who meet monthly to support the learning and social development of our students. We also have an exceptional group of Deans, who are assigned to each grade level to provide academic, emotional, and social support for all students.
St. Louis Park Middle School is an academically “successful school” with an historically high level of community support and a long-standing history of success. I look forward to the 2021-22 school year where we work together to “Create. Engage. Ignite.”
