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!

2014-15 Student Placement Survey

Dear Parents,

As we start to plan for the 2014-15 school year, we will begin building class lists for next year.  Many factors go into building a classroom, such as teaching and learning styles, ratio of male/female students, academic and language needs, ethnic diversity and relations between students to name a few.  Another important factor is parent input - sharing with us your child(ren)'s strengths and needs.

Please share with us any relevant information about teaching and learning styles that you feel would have a positive/negative affect on your child's education. Teacher teams will take into consideration the information provided when placing students into classrooms for the 2014-15 school year. We will do our best to honor your request, however we cannot guarantee placement in a desired classroom. Please submit by April 30th. Please complete a form for each child and be sure to click the SUBMIT button at the bottom.
