I went to high school and just graduated from the class of 2019. Overall my high school experience was not the best. I had faced problems with bullying, not very good instruction from teachers, and the school didn't help me much at all for college readiness. I was lucky enough to find friends in the sports and clubs I participated in. The facilities were nice and the iPads given too us helped out a lot and made the classroom enjoyable. All in all SLP Highschool is just like every other, not amazing but not terrible.

The academic opportunities were slightly limited with regards to AP exam offerings in the school. Furthermore, there is a limited amount of extracurricular activities compared to nearby high schools. There are fights between students on a monthly basis, but many of the teachers are incredibly helpful and patient. The counselors are very encouraging and help push students to reach their academic potential. The school culture itself suffers from a noticeable racial divide, for sometimes sit-ins occur due to racial slurs being posted on various places such as bathroom walls. However, the administration is quite open to the creation of new clubs that students are interested in such as Science Olympiad, Black Student Union, etc.
Spring Lake Park Public Schools has amazing students and amazing staff that noticeably care for one another. As a senior about to graduate, I am so grateful for the time I shared at SLP and wouldn't change it for the world.
