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.

I've always gone to school within Saint Paul. I'm currently enrolled at Harding Senior High school, and am taking PSEO Classes at Century College. Harding has helped me get into Genesys Works which allowed me to get an internship at Andersen Corp in Oak heights. So I give four stars!
I attended Washington Technology Magnet, a school that is located in the St. Paul Public School District. What I liked about this district is that there are many teachers who come in the same background as the students. Therefore, we are able to connect to the teachers on a deeper, caring level. Adding on, the students that attend SPPS district are very diverse. Because of that, minorities are more welcomed versus a school district of students the same color. SOOS district has healthy meals, or at least try. They care about the health of students since obesity is a major problem in the U.S. Also, SPPS district is able to provide other college readiness programs to help students attend college. They care about the future of students beyond high school. High school is just the beginning of the line, and SPPS district acknowledges that and helps students further their education beyond high school level.
