Vento Elementary School educates every student without exception and without excuse, to standard or above in reading, writing, math and science in preparation for college.
Our goal is to eliminate racial disproportionality and predictability of achievement by accelerating the achievement of our lowest performing students and increasing achievement for all students.
Our family room provides a space for families to connect with other families, learn together, and link to community organizations. The space creates a bridge between school, families, and community organizations.
Vento students learn and grow with our school garden. Classes participate in planning, planting, and harvesting the school garden throughout the year.
Ms. Napierala brings a variety of experience in helping all students feel represented and accepted for who they are. She has served students for more than 25 years as a classroom teacher, intervention specialist, instructional coach, principal intern, and most recently, as assistant principal at Skyview Middle School in the ISD 622, North Saint Paul, Oakdale, Maplewood School District.
