Welcome to

North School

Grades K-8  | Environmental Science Magnet

North School provides a safe environment where all learners grow and succeed!  We value diversity and accommodate students' needs, which is why our teaching practices are both responsive to the needs of our students and reflective.

We also believe that learning does not simply happen in a textbook so project-based learning and real-world application of subject matter are at the forefront of teaching and learning at North.  Families are treated with respect at North and recognized as partners in the learning process. We embrace communication between staff and the community as we work to create the best learning opportunities for all of our children.

At North, we believe our students can and will learn, and we have high expectations for their academic and social achievement.  We believe: 

  • Fostering confidence and competence in our students and educators will lead to growth and innovation.
  • Cultivating compassionate and respectful relationships within our learning community will lead to a safe and healthy learning environment.
  • Encouraging our students to pursue multiple interests and extra-curricular talents will lead to well-rounded lifelong learners. 
  • Our differences are a major strength and we praise each person's unique attributes as these differences enrich teaching and learning experiences within our school family.

 

  • Our students, our families, and our community partners are a large part of what makes North a rich learning environment.

  • We implement culturally responsive positive behavior intervention supports to teach expectations and help students find the positive rewards in navigating their way to success.

  • All students have reading interventions such as System 44 and Read 180 and/or enrichment groups.

  • MSU Partnerships such as 4-H, student tutors, and the Canvases for Communities art after-school program

  • Project Unify/Special Olympics

  • Student Government

  • Reaching Higher's after-school tutoring and enrichment program

  • Family literacy, math, and project-based learning nights

  • One-to-one technology for students

  • North's School Garden and greenhouse and partnership with the Greater Lansing Food Bank

  • The School Improvement Grant which has provided extensive support for improvements in professional development for staff, project-based learning, one-to-one technology for students, improvements for our gardening programs, and support for many, many more sustainable improvements for students!
