At Wellstone students learn to read, write, speak and listen in both Spanish and English. Our historic sunlit building, named for the late Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila, offers students and families three computer labs and a beautiful, welcoming library with reading materials in both English and Spanish. Our goal is to educate students to be proficient in the Spanish and English languages, develop a global perspective, and gain understanding of other cultures. Learn more...
An option for Paul & Sheila Wellstone students is a dual immersion program that represents bilingual education at its best. In this model, each child gains confidence as both a first-language model and a second-language learner.
At Wellstone all staff take responsibility for and have a collective focus on student growth and achievement. We have an inclusive environment where diversity is valued and all students are free to be themselves. It is a cohesive community where families, staff, and students feel welcomed, encouraged, supported and engaged. We share the responsibility of upholding high expectations that are consistent. Creative thinking paired with inventive teaching will lead to exceptional academic and social achievement.
Help your student succeed. Parent tips about how to help students prepare for school, attend school regularly, study for exams and promote reading at home are available here. In addition tips are available in Spanish, Hmong and Somali.
Ours is a school where we strive to inspire and demand more of every child, as we would our own children.
