Our school offers exceptional resources – including the district’s only onsite planetarium – all near beautiful Como Park. As
a result, nature is a special focus for our school. Our community connects regularly with Belwin Outdoor Science, Bakken
Museum, Children’s Museum, Big River Journey, Como Zoo, and Starbase Minnesota. Students in our school have achieved
solid growth in reading and math. In addition to core classes, our young learners are inspired through science, music, art,
dance and physical education. Students use technology as a tool for learning, processing information and presenting what
they’ve learned in a variety of subject areas.
