• Building Strong Schools for a Strong Community 

    After significant progress over the past five years to better focus our educational experience to the changing needs of our students, we are committed to taking learning to the next level in Saint Paul.

    Closing the achievement gap isn’t about changing one thing, but about strategically and thoughtfully assembling the right system of programs and services. We are doing that in Saint Paul Public Schools by improving our instruction, our technology and our economic condition.

    We are grateful to the Saint Paul community for its outstanding support of the students in our city over the past five years.
