Our Educational Programs

We extend our warmest welcome as you explore Glacial Hills Elementary for your child's educational journey. At our esteemed institution, we offer an enriching learning environment that has empowered countless students to learn, develop, and thrive. As a tuition-free public school, we take pride in providing intimate class sizes and fostering a culture of excellence.

Embracing the principles of experiential learning and student-centered instruction, we go beyond the confines of traditional classrooms to deliver a curriculum that not only meets Minnesota State Standards but also emphasizes environmental education. This dedication to innovative teaching methods has consistently positioned our school among the top performers in academic growth statewide.

Our holistic approach to education places students at the heart of their learning journey. We are committed to nurturing the whole child, supporting their cognitive, behavioral, social, emotional, and academic development every step of the way.

At Glacial Hills, we have carefully selected Scholastic Literacy as our reading and writing curriculum, empowering students with voice and choice to foster a genuine love for literacy. With authentic and culturally relevant reading selections and writing prompts, we ignite curiosity and engagement. Additionally, our adoption of the Bridges in Mathematics curriculum has been met with enthusiasm from both teachers and students, promoting deep conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills.

 

Beyond academics, we are dedicated to supporting your child's holistic growth. Our dedicated student support specialist, Kristi Gruber, employs the Second Step social-emotional curriculum and restorative justice practices to help students become their best selves. Through whole-group lessons and individual support sessions, we ensure that every student receives the personalized attention they need to thrive.

At Glacial Hills Elementary, we take pride in the strong bonds we forge with our students, families, and community. We are thrilled at the prospect of welcoming you into our GHES family. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns as you embark on this exciting journey with us.

Warm regards,
