Peb ntseeg tias yim paub ntau hom lus, yim zoo xwb thiab yog ib txoj kev yuav pab kom ua tau ib tug neeg txawj ntse, txawj xav, thiab txawj coj rau yav pem suab. Phalen Lake offers a unique opportunity for students to discover the gift of bilingualism through our Hmong Dual Language program. We believe knowing more than one language brings countless benefits to our students and greatly enhances their intellectual growth, their cross-cultural skills, and broadens their world views to make world-class citizens.
Phalen Lake has a Hmong two-way immersion program. We value and believe that knowing two languages enables learners to be compassionate citizens, flexible thinkers, creative problem solvers, and competent workers in today’s global society.
Phalen Lake students are confident, creative thinkers who seek and use knowledge in a changing world.
Currently, Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet located at 1089 Cypress Street, and the Hmong Culture and Middle School located at 1363 Bush Avenue, is in the process of a name change. Both schools share the unique offering of Hmong culture and language programs, providing families with a preK-8 magnet focus. The two school communities will share a common school name as lower campus (for the elementary school) and upper campus (for the middle school).

As a bilingual and bi-cultural leader, Ms. Xiong values the cultural assets that staff, students, and families bring to Phalen Lake. She looks forward to continuing her partnership with you and building upon the relationships she has established at Phalen Lake over the last 16 years.
Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is a framework that creates and sustains positive, effective and culturally-inclusive environments for all students.
