We’re here to nurture the love of learning in each child. Our greatest success is when students truly discover their unique genius and embrace a life of authenticity and purpose.

Be Bold. Be Heard. Belong.

Anti-Racism in Brooklyn Center

Instead of avoiding discomfort, we work to reject our biases — big or small — by confronting them with ferocity and compassion.

Stronger Families. Healthier Communities.

Our integrated focus on academics, health, and social services leads to improved student learning,
because we know that learning starts when basic needs are met.

Some of the most important learning in a child’s life starts before kindergarten. In Brooklyn Center Community Schools, we recognize the importance of early learning and offer several programs from birth to age five. We see ourselves as partners in your child’s lifelong journey of learning.

Elementary students learning in class

For our youngest learners, we emphasize the idea of wonder in the world. Students are fueled by opportunities to investigate and discover, learning more about themselves and others along the way.

As a Community School District with nearly 100 partnerships with community organizations, we’re able to better serve the whole child — eliminating barriers to learning so that each child can freely pursue their potential.

Students hugging their teacher

Your student will have access to enrichment and childcare programs that engage them in learning and activities outside of the classroom. Students are inspired to pursue their interests while developing friendships, independence and confidence.

In Brooklyn Center, we want everything we offer to reflect the community we’re a part of. We use inclusive processes — amplifying student, staff and community voices — to shape district decisions, introduce programs, and inform curriculum choices. When we all contribute, we create a loving place where learners can thrive.

Family at STEAM night

Here, your student will enter a space where diversity is embraced and the seeds of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) learning are planted. In all elementary grade levels, your child will thrive in learning environments where learning fuels their unique genius.

From Our Community

Strong Relationships

I was walking a group of students to my room, with a new student included. One of my kids who has been with me for a couple of years turned to the new student and said quietly, "you’re really going to like Ms. Fourthgrade’s class. It’s so much fun."

Fostering Joy

BCCS has given me the opportunity to foster joy in my students each and every day. The best part is that they foster that joy in me as well. Teaching is my passion and I can't imagine doing anything else.
