Institution Description

New City is an innovative K-8 public charter school in its 18th year in Northeast Minneapolis. Guided by its mission to effectively integrate social, emotional, and academic learning and to honor the diversity and individuality of each student, New City students meet daily in “Crew” (advisory) groups for support, team-building, and anti-racist work. New City limits class sizes, cultivates expression through arts, intentionally fosters both the student and staff community and, through a pervasive growth orientation, aspires to launch students to high school and beyond to foster a new and better city.

Our school values human complexity and diversity of all kinds. We honor interests, passions, choice, as well as shared inquiry in pursuit of answers. We strive to unify and connect staff members in community as a model for students. Being known is essential as a part of an intentionally small school. New City families value belonging, safety, community, fun, and their teachers. There is an uncommon sense of pride and ownership in the school community that makes it a very satisfying place in which to work.
