We are a free K-8 charter school connected to MTS (Minnesota Transitions Charter School). Located in North Minneapolis, our school is focused on serving 300+ Somali students in our community. We are proud to announce that Banaadir Academy has recently relocated to our own building! This new location offers us plenty of room to grow, a combined cafeteria/gymnasium, computer lab, and outdoor playground.
Our desire is for our students to be provided with an environment that is safe, caring, and conducive to learning. Since we have many English learners, our ELL staff strives to provide instruction for academic and linguistic competence. We also offer free Arabic lessons to all of our students from kindergarten to fifth grade.
Come check out Banaadir Academy, where academic excellence and cultural values coexist!
