WELCOME STATEMENT

Our school district’s mission says in part that we aim to develop internationally-minded students and to that end we “challenge ourselves, our students, and our community to become caring and knowledgeable lifelong learners who inquire and take action to create a better world.”

Fridley continues to welcome all our students and families who have chosen to make our schools their schools of choice. As International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools, we demonstrate the ideals of the IB Learner Profile by caring about every single member of our school community and we are committed to supporting our students as best as we can.

We want to assure all our Fridley students and families that they are welcome here and that we will continue to provide the same level of quality education in a safe and welcoming environment to all our students as we have always done.

ABOUT Fridley Public Schools

The Fridley School District serves the central area of the City of Fridley with two elementary schools (K-4), a middle school (5-8), a high school (9-12) and a community center, with an area learning center. Fridley is known for a small-town atmosphere in the midst of a metro area.

Fridley experiences unusually strong enrollment by nonresidents who cite quality academics, good school climate, and personalized attention for each student, as their reasons for choosing the Fridley Schools.

The Fridley School District offers the International Baccalaureate Programme to all students. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is offered at our elementary schools, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) is offered at our middle school and high school, and the Diploma Programme (DP) is offered at the high school. Hayes and Stevenson Elementary Schools, Fridley Middle School and Fridley High School are all IB World Schools.

The continuum of IB education serves Fridley students by preparing them with the skills they will need to be citizens of the 21st century. Education through the IB framework has an emphasis on international mindedness, rigorous curriculum and assessment, instruction in a second language, and teaching the whole child.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. IB learners strive to be: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.


At a special meeting on December 12, 2018, the Fridley School Board appointed Mr. Abdisalam Adam to the Board. Mr. Adam will replace Board member Kim Sampson who will retire at the end of the year.
