Get to know us
Green Central Spanish Dual Language Magnet leads in language learning
Located in the heart of the Central neighborhood of South Minneapolis, Green Central Spanish Dual Language Magnet welcomes students from throughout the city. Students at Green Central will experience a collaborative learning environment that integrates English and Spanish language into all subjects. Beginning in pre-K and kindergarten, students receive 90% of their instruction in Spanish and 10% of their instruction in English. Instruction in English gradually increases with the English/Spanish ratio culminating at 50/50 in grade 5.
All students learn to read, write and speak in both languages.  Students are encouraged to continue in the Spanish Dual Language pathway at Andersen United Community School. As a Full-Service Community School, Green Central offers health support, out-of-school activities, and engagement opportunities for students and families—including the Southside Family Clinic, which provides medical services to families.

Minnesota Report Card Data

The Minnesota Report Card is a tool to help inform families and communities about their schools so they can make important decisions and meaningfully engage with schools and educators. However, Minnesota Report Card data only provides a partial snapshot of what the experience may be like at any given school. MPS recommends connecting directly with school leaders and communities through school tours, open houses and other events to gain a fuller understanding of how our schools support students and families.
