I have 3 boys at Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet . I have been extremely happy with the education my boys are getting. Teachers are in constant contact with me about my boys progress, always emphasizing the positive. They have a Core Knowledge curriculum that allows the kids to get a global view of the world and its history. My boys are learning about the Hmong culture. The teachers use this culture as a way to get the kids to understand other cultures. My sons have friends from all over the world: Somalia, Nigeria, Nepal, Thailand and Mexico. There is a very positive and welcoming environment at this school. 5th graders are collecting the histories of many of the Hmong elders and community members as a part of an ethnography project. The kids have been learning Iphoto and Imovies and how to interview. I would encourage any one looking for wellroundededucationtocheckitout.
My son started in this school this year in 3rd grade and it has been such a positive environment for him. He's more excited about going to school and is more aware of his heritage than ever before. It's great to see him happy about school everyday!
This school is so good it help my son learn how to read write and math i very like this school
