The system is what you make of it, but overall the experience is enriching. There is a variety of learning paths that cater to most types of learners and there are classes offered that give a more open-minded and increasingly vast account of topics that are often debated or left out altogether in other districts. The diversity and inclusivity provides even more opportunity to increase knowledge both in and out of the classroom. As with most intercity, public institutions, though, there is the constant struggle to gain funding for certain programs or equipment, and it appeared that not all clubs and organizations were given equitable consideration.

Saint Paul Public School gives student excellent college readiness for college using IB Classes, PSEO program, etc. They have many different ways to earn college credit in High School. Saint Paul Public Schools has many different language classes that can help one learn about others and help other cultures be known. These language classes are are different than the average high school classes which include Hmong, Dakota, Japanese, etc. I highly recommend Saint Paul Public Schools because the diversity and programs are an excellent resource students need.
Saint Paul Public Schools as a whole is not terrible. Specifically at Creative Arts Secondary School, administration and teachers are constantly changing. This creates an inconsistent high school experience. CASS is special in the sense that it's art focused and there are no sports. Because of that specialization and the inconsistent staff, the academics suffer. Little to no accelerated courses are offered. Also because of the staff issue, the focus on the arts can look different from year to year. New administration and different teachers creates the issue of inconsistency and having no real solid foundation.
