Teaching and learning. It is not just a slogan. It's what the women and men of St. Cloud Area School District 742 do. Our caring and committed staff members deliver learning for a lifetime to a diverse population of students in nine St. Cloud area communities. District 742 is the largest school district in Central Minnesota, proudly sharing the gift of education with nearly 9,500 students each school day. Located 70 miles northwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul, we bring the world's ideas into every school room. Our licensed staff, 67 percent of whom have advanced degrees, teach challenging classes that use the latest technology as well as tried-and-true methods. District 742 has eight elementary schools, two junior highs (7-8), two high schools (9-12), two alternative learning schools, an early childhood center and a community education center. The high schools offer an array of AP courses and other opportunities to prepare students for post-secondary education. Students are encouraged to participate in their choice of athletic, scholarly and fine arts activities. Meeting the needs of the entire community is fundamental. In partnership with parents, post-secondary educational institutions and businesses, the district is shaping curriculum, instruction and assessment to ensure all students are successful. Our Early Childhood Services and Community Education Center programs provide opportunities for district residents from newborn through adult, including citizenship and language classes that educate our newest residents. Our Special Education program delivers a full range of services to disabled students, from birth to age 21. Residents show support for District 742 in many ways.
