Open Quote How can a parent rate this school highly when it's rated one of the 10 worst schools in the state?! The community may very well gather around this school and keep it from closing, however, that doesn't seem to be doing much to ensure the children at this school are meeting basic requirements. Look at their test scores! The children are being cheated by adults who are accepting mediocrity and/or substandard academic performance as the standard. SAD!! Close Quote

Open Quote Over the past 7 years, this school has been repeatedly threatended with closure by the Minneapolis School District because of it's small size. Every time, however, the community gathers around this school and the Minneapolis School Board protects it. If you are looking for a small community school where all the staff will know your child and you can be a highly effective parent this is the school for you. The school benefits from it's proximity to the University of Minnesota for additional teaching, arts and science curriculum. The student population is a wonderfully diverse mix of cultures. The building is the oldest remaining Minneapolis School building - a charmer. The staff is top-notch and dedicated to this hidden gem. Highly recommended. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
