St. Anthony Park has two public schools and three charter schools in our community. St. Anthony Park Elementary School serves students from kindergarten through 5th grade. 6th graders move on to Murray Middle School to join 7th and 8th graders.
We do not have a public high school in the Park. Public high school students go to Como Senior High. Three charter schools serve students from many neighborhoods. Two located on or near University Ave in South St. Anthony Park, Avalon and Jennings, offer alternative learning environments for high school students. Dugsi Academy opened on Snelling Avenue in 2015 as a culturally specific school to integrate K-8 students into the scholastic community of Minnesota.
