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!

Here's to a great year ahead!

We all hope you had a wonderful summer.  All of us at Northrop are excited to see you all back at school starting on Monday (Wednesday for the Kindergarteners).  Here's to a great year ahead!
