Linwood Monroe Arts Plus is a dual campus, with grades K-3 at the Lower Campus (Linwood) and grades 4-8 at the Upper Campus (Monroe). Both campuses infuse the arts into the curriculum, using hands-on creative experiences to support core academics. After completing 4th and 5th grades at the Upper Campus, students transition seamlessly into middle school at the same site – where their teachers already know them. Specialists in visual arts, drama, vocal and instrumental music, and dance teach daily. Our weekly Friday Gathering gives everyone a chance to share the experience of being a presenter, performer or appreciative audience member, and Monroe students also share their work with the broader St. Paul community through the Fourth Grade Opera, poetry slams, and art exhibitions. Partnerships and residencies offer remarkable arts experiences, both at school and in arts venues throughout the community. Our middle school offers electives in the arts as well as AVID, Project Lead the Way, wood shop, health and physical education. Athletics are offered to students in grades 6-8.
