Welcome to Bruce Vento Elementary

  •  With colorful college flags and staff members proudly proclaiming where they attended college, Bruce Vento Elementary makes a strong statement that college is our goal for every student. School-wide, each class “adopts” a college or university and learns about its campus. In return, colleges and universities around the country have adopted our classrooms. For example, the University of Minnesota’s College of Design has partnered with Vento fifth graders on projects like 3D computer-aided interior design and creating the toys of the future. Students in grades 3-5 visit a local college or university each year.

Where academic achievement knows no limits

    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.
