• Mobile Jazz After School is in Session
    The Twin Cities Mobile Jazz Project has partnered with the Office of College and Career Readiness to teach students about Jazz history, and its many links to modern music. As an after-school program at Harding Senior High School and Humboldt Senior High School, students learn about core music concepts, music instruments, and great performers. In addition, students learn the basics of playing instruments as well as listening techniques from professional artists, musicians and educators.

    Alternative Education Programs

    SPPS Summer Term (S-Term), is the perfect antidote to summer boredom. Programs, offered in two sessions, vary based on grade level and skill level. Students can strengthen basic skills (grades K-7), get an early start on high school (grade 8), or recover credits needed to graduate (grades 9-12). Students in grades K-8 can attend S-Term 1, S-Term 2, both S-Terms, OR CDF Freedom Schools – known nationwide as a model of what summer education can be.
