Our school is nestled along Battle Creek Regional Park. The wooded hills, trails and wetlands provide a unique opportunity for
students to learn firsthand about Minnesota’s many natural resources. We emphasize hands-on learning by using the peaceful
forest and groomed trails of the park for activities ranging from pond studies to nature walks. In addition to core subjects,
students have opportunities in music, physical education and science. Our active parents help promote our school and raise
funds to provide additional resources and activities. Partnerships with Science from Scientists, the Minneapolis Institute of Art,
Art Start Inc. and STARBASE enhance every child’s school experience. At Battle Creek, students learn self-confidence and
good citizenship in a place surrounded by nature.
