Northrop is a community school in south Minneapolis. We are near the Mississippi River, Lake Hiawatha, Lake Nokomis, and the Minnehaha Falls. We take advantage of our location with many field trips to nearby locations and with an emphasis on environmental education. We also prioritize Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and have it as a specialist class that every student, K-5 attends, along with art, music, and physical education. Students at Northrop leave having had rich and in-depth academic experiences along with social and emotional learning that supports them as they continue their schooling. Welcome to the Northrop community!
