We’re not only committed to our students, we’re committed to ourselves and our need to learn. The needs of a child are continuously changing so we need to be continuously evolving. 

    What can you expect as a member of the Brooklyn Center Elementary STEAM family?
    Our culture is changing to become a transparent and accessible community where staff and families have a seat at the table. We clearly communicate the expectations of our students and families so we can partner in each student’s unique learning journey. When we partner together, we can find success for each child in our community, during and beyond their time at Brooklyn Center Elementary STEAM. We celebrate the positives of our family and look to adapt when we aren’t meeting expectations.

    Community Schools

    We are Minnesota’s first full service community school district. Community Schools integrate education, enrichment, wellness, and support to ensure that:

    • Children enter school ready to learn
    • Students succeed academically
    • Students are actively involved in learning and the community
    • Students are healthy physically, socially and emotionally Our integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth development, and community and family engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities.

    STEAM Magnet Program

    Every student in our district receives STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) education through a magnet program model. We implemented Project Lead the Way curriculum beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. Starting in kindergarten, students learn how to code. High school students have experiences in the biomedical field, including how to analyze a crime scene. STEAM education incorporates the “A” for the arts – recognizing that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills which are best developed through exposure to the arts.
