    • Open World Learning Community (OWL) is a district magnet school with transportation to all St. Paul students.
    • OWL is a small-by-design school that is part of the national network of EL (Expeditionary Learning) Education Schools, which promote rigorous and engaging curriculum; active, inquiry-based pedagogy; and a school culture that demands and teaches compassion and good citizenship.
    • With just 450 students in Grades 6 through 12, every student is a known and valued part of our family-like community. 
    • Our Crew program (advisory at OWL) fosters strong relationships and a sense of belonging through a unique curriculum centered on social and emotional growth.
    • Curriculum is designed around Learning Expeditions – projects that allow students to investigate issues in our school, the community and the world.
    • OWL students earn at least 300 hours of service in a Service-Learning program designed around solidarity, not charity.
    • Students develop their critical thinking skills and can earn college credit while in high school through our Advanced Placement and College in the Schools classes and by taking PSEO courses at local colleges.
