Our school feels like a small learning community, yet with all the opportunities available in a large urban school. Partnerships with local universities and community organizations, such as the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra CONNECT Program, enable us to offer many rich educational experiences. Childcare before and after school is offered through Discovery Club and the S’more Fun program. Dedicated parents help raise funds each year for artist residencies and to bring in an Amity Intern – a native of Spain, Mexico or South America – who assists students in learning some of the Spanish culture and language. Each fall our fifth grade classes travel to an environmental camp near Ely, Minnesota, for several days. Music, art, and physical education teachers provide a well-rounded school experience along with two science specialists, who ensure students in all grades have 100 minutes of science each week.
