Banaadir Academy – North Campus

Students are held to high educational standards through an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math.

Banaadir North is a K-6 tuition-free, public school, and a member of the Minnesota Tranisitions Charter School (MTCS), a K-12 academic community. Located in North Minneapolis, the school is focused on serving 300+ students in the community.

Staff and students are proud of their school, exhibit a strong sense of community and are focused on student growth. “Our desire is to provide students with an environment that is safe, caring and conducive to learning,” said Elementary Director Shawn Fondow.

With many English learners, Banaadir’s ELL staff strives to provide instruction for academic and linguistic competence. Such competence enables students to achieve on the same basis as native English speakers and participate successfully in the mainstream of American society.

Experiences and opportunities at Banaadir are designed to benefit students with the following:

  • Develop positive self-esteem and interpersonal relationships

  • Continue building academic competencies and critical thinking skills

  • Practice problem-solving and decision-making

  • Explore their aptitudes, interests, and creative abilities

  • Develop a sense of responsibility to themselves, home and community
