Welcome!

Located just minutes from Lake Nokomis, Lake Hiawatha and Minnehaha Creek, Northrop Urban Environmental Learning Center offers excellent opportunities to explore the natural world in the city.  We provide extensive hands-on and outdoor learning to trigger your child's sense of wonder, and enable them to make discoveries on their own.  We believe this personal empowerment is the bridge to a life-long thirst for knowledge. Come see for yourself!

Northrop named a REWARD school!

Northrop has been given the designation of Reward School for 2014.  These schools are the top 15 percent of schools that receive Title I funding. They represent the highest-performing schools on the four domains in the State Department of Education's Multiple Measurement Rating. Currently, the reward for these schools mainly comes through public recognition. 

Northrop is one of 3 schools in the district to earn this recognition.
