MTS Elementary

MTS Elementary is a family-focused learning environment that is located near a park in northeast Minneapolis. A tuition-free, public school, MTS Elementary is a member of the Minnesota Transition Charter School, a K-12 academic community.

Our home is a modern-designed school building with natural sunlight-filled classrooms. The small student count in each of our K-6 classrooms creates a unique and individualized learning environment. We know our students, and our students know the staff.
