Bethune Arts Magnet School celebrates community, creativity and arts integration  
In Fall 2021, Bethune becomes an arts magnet school in Minneapolis’ Heritage Park neighborhood. Students will experience a learning experience that integrates the arts into all core subjects. Bethune’s proximity to downtown provides easy access to thriving arts and theater experiences.  Students will have opportunities to showcase their learning through arts experiences such as artist residencies, field trips, community partnerships, and performances.
Bethune values family engagement and participation and offers many opportunities for various family arts experiences. As a Full-Service Community School, Bethune also offers health support, out-of-school time activities, and family engagement opportunities for our students and their families. Arts programming continues at the Franklin STEAM magnet for middle school and at FAIR High School for the Arts.
