The school and each class create a sense of community which respects and values all members. The arts provide a vehicle for integrating varied strategies throughout the instructional day to enhance student achievement. During each week, students will have experience in four arts areas: music, visual art, theater and dance. I explore every subject through the arts, even math and science. They stay engaged in learning because our teachers know how to link creativity with core academics. With benefits like a classroom , a full dance studio, students benefit from a full, hands-on approach to the arts. The School and community do a lot to enthusiastic families and community partners that support our creative, engaged students.

My experience for the district is I understand what the teachers has taught me and it is easy for me to learn. I got to know other ethnicity, religions and cultured because the Saint Paul Public has students who are different from me and who come from other parts of the world. I got to learn a different languages from them. They have a lot of good support for EL students that need more help with English. Is easier for me to ask a teachers and friends when i need help. I like how the Saint Paul Public School District accept every ethnicity, every race, and every colors. I like how there are people of colors and a lot of classes. It gives a students more option and opportunities on what they want to do and help them prepare for future education and life. I would like to see more teachers other than white so it will help the students of colors feel safe and they don’t need to be scared or worried when they ask for help. And I would like teacher to take students mental health seriously.
I am a product of Saint Paul Public Schools. I attended the schools as a child, as well as a staff member of the District. I have been mentored and guided by some of the best teachers and educators this district has ever seen. It would be criminal if i didn't return later as an adult to pour back into the youth by helping them succeed and being their educational mentor as well!
