A suburb of Minneapolis, St. Louis Park, or "The Park" as it is affectionately referred, is a diverse and vibrant, inner-ring community with a rich cultural and economic history.   Growing alongside the culturally diverse and economically robust Twin Cities, The Park offers a contemporary lifestyle, commensurate with the high quality of life the metro area enjoys. With a long tradition supporting their independent school district, St. Louis Park was an early advocate of Children First, initiating the program in 1993 as the first district in Minnesota, and one of the first in the US.

St. Louis Park developed from its humble rail hub and heavy industry origins to its current residential neighborhood and commercial mix.  Heavy industry was supplanted by housing, parks, retail, light industry and services, and the community now offers a blend of urban sophistication and green-space activities. 

Consistently ranked by national media as one of the country's finest public high schools, St. Louis Park High Scool has established credentials offering high achieving students the opportunity to thrive in IB and AP coursework, routinely producing college-ready students accepted and succeeding in the finest learning institutions in the country.

With a full enrollment of 1,360 students over four class years, St. Louis Park High offers a small public school atmosphere with the academic and extra-curricular advantages of a large metropolitan school. The school is heralded as small enough to know one another, large enough to matter.
