Why Choose Palmer Lake Elementary

Palmer Lake Elementary is located in Brooklyn Park and serves nearly 475 students in prekindergarten through fifth grade. Considered a neighborhood anchor, Palmer Lake benefits from a strong local community and is currently serving its second and third generations of student families.

At Palmer Lake, we believe in challenging the status quo to ensure equitable student achievement. We believe in thinking differently about how we inspire and prepare each child to achieve their dreams. We create transformational change by analyzing our practices through a racial lens and personalizing the learning experience for students.
