  • Welcome to Battle Creek Elementary

    Our school is nestled along Battle Creek Regional Park. Access to the wooded hills, trails and wetlands enables students to learn firsthand about Minnesota’s many natural resources. We emphasize hands-on learning by using the peaceful forest and groomed trails of the park for activities ranging from pond studies to nature walks. In addition to core subjects, students have opportunities in music, physical education and science. Learn more...
