Heritage STEM Academy celebrates Somali culture and creative thinking

Heritage STEM Academy School Community — one of Minneapolis’s best-kept secrets for grades 9-12 — embodies a learning environment where everyone feels safe, supported and able to achieve socially, emotionally and academically. During the 2020/2021 school year, Heritage will embark on a robust transformation to a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) focus. Instruction will include intentional STEM integration into core subjects and STEM electives. Students will have opportunities to become STEM literate, think critically and become leaders with a sense of discovery. The foundation of academic success at Heritage is attributed to the teachers’ ability to create individualized learning opportunities for students, so that they can progress at their own unique pace.

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.
