District 282 serves St. Anthony and a small part of New Brighton with an elementary school (K-5), a middle school (6-8) and a high school.

Wilshire Park Elementary school is a child-centered learning community with a strong parent volunteer program. Traditional classroom instruction is augmented with specialists in art, math, media, music, phy ed and science. Options include team teaching and multi-year looping. Instructional practices encourage basic skills, critical and creative thinking, problem solving and decision making, and experiential learning. Leaning opportunities outside the school day include K-Kids, Computer Composer’s Club, DestiNation Imagination, guest speakers, and “Super Saturday Sensations.”

St. Anthony Middle School has a total of 400 students across 6th, 7th and 8th grade. The middle school staff is known as providing our students, parents, and community a quality middle school program framed in a best practices approach to learning. The schedule features a modified block approach with a late start on Wednesday mornings. Students who elect to come early on Wednesdays can participate in open gym activities, clubs, or activities held in the cafeteria. All students participate in an exploratory program during which they interact with staff and other students while working on interesting hands-on projects. The school has a strong reputation as being a smaller, safe school with high academic standards.

St. Anthony Village High School fosters a supportive and challenging environment for the academic and emotional growth of each student. Technology is balanced with reading, reflection, and discussion/writing to provide academic rigor in preparation for college and/or career. Whether you look at the Minnesota reporting system for accountability of high schools, college entrance test results, number of students recognized by National Merit, Advanced Placement test results including the number of students named AP Scholars, or excellence in academic-related school activities (2004 Knowledge Bowl State Champions in the large school division), St. Anthony Village High School consistently ranks near the top of all high schools in the State.

Extensive renovation of all building includes library/media centers with electronic card catalogs and online information retrieval systems, and video production and distribution facilities.

A ten-district collaboration allows families to consider the Interdistrict Downtown School (IDDS) or the Fine Arts Interdistrict Resource School (FAIR), IDDS (K-12) opened in 1998 in Minneapolis and makes use of nearby arts, business, education and government resources. FAIR (grades 4-8) opened in 2000 in Crystal.

Community Services programs include early childhood and family education, preschool, child care for children 33 months to 5 years, K-8 child care, adult education and recreation, senior citizen activities, aquatics, youth development services and after-school activities.
