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. Embedded throughout the year are supports, enrichments and celebrations that honor individual and school achievements. Bruce Vento Elementary has also established a Family Resource Center where we partner with the Eastside Family Center and the Cultural Wellness Center to support our families. Our mission is to provide every student with the strongest possible foundation in reading, writing, math and science – to prepare them for success in middle and high school and, ultimately, college.
