    • Our building offers full technology upgrades, spacious classrooms, and beautiful, large windows with light-filled learning spaces
    • Two program options are available: a Spanish-English Immersion program and a Community program taught in English. 
    • Both programs use thematic units of study that support students in making connections across content areas and languages. 
    • Our Spanish-English Dual Language program prepares both native-English and native-Spanish speakers to be proficient in both languages. Our goal is for students to read, write, listen and speak in both English and Spanish by the end of 5th grade.
    • Social-Emotional Learning is part of the curriculum. Students learn skills needed to resolve conflict, express emotions and self-regulate. Restorative Practices are used to build community and repair harm.
    • Additionally, we provide opportunities for students to learn about one another, their cultures and learn how to interact with people that are different from themselves.
    • Students in grades PreK-5 have enrichment classes in science, music and physical education. Students in 3rd-5th are able to take violin, viola or cello lessons from the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies on site. 
    • Community partners join us all year through additional weekly music classes from MacPhail Center for Music (PreK-2nd), artist residencies with the Ordway Theatre and others.
    • Before-school activities include academic support, chess, Lego League and band.
    • Uniforms are required.
