Superintendent Laney reading to preschoolers.Welcome to the St. Anthony - New Brighton School District.  The school board, administration and staff appreciate your interest in our district.  We want to encourage you to learn more about the exceptional programs and services we offer our students and families.

St. Anthony Community Services provides Early Childhood programs for children ages three- to five-years of age, a before- and after-school extended day program for youth in grades K-6, family and parent education programs, after-school youth programming and activities for adults and senior citizens.

Wilshire Park Elementary is committed to maximizing the academic and social development of all students. In order to achieve these goals, we place a high emphasis on developing, and then maintaining, strong partnerships with families and also the greater community.  At Wilshire Park, students in grades K-5 experience curriculum based on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).  The goals of our STEM program are as follows: Provide a rigorous and dynamic standards-based learning experience, Develop conceptual knowledge, inquiry skills, and innovative thinking, Foster a growth mindset to increase motivation and productivity, and address equity in STEM education that includes issues of access, pedagogy, and curriculumThe academic program at Wilshire Park also includes a literacy program encompassing the strategy of Guided Reading.  Other program highlights include a gifted and talented program, an All Day Kindergarten option, music including band and choir, and art.

St. Anthony Middle School (SAMS) is committed to offering an exceptional experience for all students.  At SAMS, students receive a strong foundation for academic success in their core classes (Language Arts, Science, Math, and Social Studies).  With courses like Spanish, eTech, and a strong music program, students also receive a rigorous, rich, and diverse curriculum beyond the traditional classes.  However, it’s not just an exceptional academic experience students receive at SAMS,  but one where each student will find they are an important, unique, and talented member of our school community.  As one of our teachers recently shared, “When kids leave SAMS, they will have finished one of the most challenging stages of their young lives.  However, because of the efforts of many adults, the kids will be prepared to face the challenges that await them, not just in school, but in their lives.”

St. Anthony Village High School has a wide variety of academic and extracurricular offering for our students.  Our staff has worked to develop sequences of courses that prepare students to take advanced coursework during their time in high school.  We offer 11 Advanced Placement courses in 5 general areas of study - Science, Math, English, Social Studies, and Art.   Also, our students may take up to 4 levels of French or 5 levels of Spanish - Spanish 4 and 5 being offered for University of Minnesota college credit through College in the Schools.  Aspiring engineers, as well as students with vocational aptitude, will find our 7 STEM classes ideal.  In these classes, students learn about design, construction and fabrication.  Advanced students will write programming to fabricate parts on state of the art CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines.  We also offer numerous CTE (Career Technology Education) courses where students receive training in computer applications, cooking and fashion.  Our numerous clubs, activities and athletic programs provide opportunities for our students to be actively engaged  after school.  The goal of St. Anthony Village High School is that every student graduate have an advanced academic experience that will prepare them for college and well on the way to the career of their choice.
