Welcome to Stillwater Area Public Schools!
It is my great pleasure to introduce you to our school district and our outstanding schools. Stillwater is the oldest school district in the state of Minnesota. Since the first one-room school house was established in 1848 we’ve been building a long, rich history of quality education for our students.
We have an outstanding staff committed to knowing students personally and helping to meet their unique needs. We provide numerous opportunities in academics, arts and athletics for students to explore their interests and develop passions, and we have an expectation of success for every learner.
Throughout the years our residents have demonstrated their desire to live in one of the best school districts in Minnesota. We support each other and we learn from each other. Where you find a great community, you can be assured there are outstanding schools.
Please stop in and visit!

Talk Of The District
In his first column, our new superintendent, Dr. Funk, explains how the district is reinvesting in academic achievement in a significant way.
In the past two years as the leader of this school district, I’ve come to understand and experience “community” in an entirely new way.
Unstable funding and a history of budget cutting is negatively impacting our ability to serve kids.
There are many words that can be used to describe this past year. But to me, the word remarkable tops my list.
