While our school enjoys a unique setting and curriculum on the grounds of the Minnesota Zoo and near Lebannon Hills Region Park, it is part of Independent School District 196. Students can choose to attend the school for their junior and senior years.
Regular School Day Hours
When a student will be absent, a parent or guardian will need to call the SES attendance office before 10:00 am each day the student misses school. When placing the call be prepared to give the following information:
•Parent or guardian name and the relationship to the student.
•Name of the student and current grade.
•Reason for absence.
email: firstname.lastname@example.org NOTE: all absences need to be called in at the number above. Please use email for questions about attendance only.
Our school is small, but our studies are broad. The library at SES reflects that by being a hub for print and electronic resources related to our curriculum.
Students with disabilities are supported at SES under federal and state disability laws. Students with a documented disability that qualify can receive accommodations, modifications, and services through either a 504 Plan or an Individual Education Program (IEP).
Connie Ertz, our school nurse, has a direct phone line to her office. Contact her at the number below with questions and concerns.
Students must have a parking permit displayed in their vehicle to park in the student lots adjacent to the school. To obtain a parking permit fill out the form available in the FeePay system online. If more applications are received than spaces available a drawing is held to assign permits.
Registration forms and other information for both new and returning students can found on the registration page.
At SES the school counselor, Nathan Nelson, works with students to resolve issues with schedules, prepare for college and post high school careers. A monthly update is posted by the counselor giving important information on upcoming deadlines and school activities such as college visits and scholarship opportunities.
