Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet

A Framework for Cross-Cultural Understanding

Zoo Siab Tos Txais! Our school offers all students an opportunity to develop the skills to actively participate in a multicultural society. Our learners explore the culture, language, history, art, literature and traditions of many cultures, with a special focus on the Hmong people. Students in grades K-1 may enroll in a two-way Hmong Dual Language Program that develops fully bilingual, biliterate and multicultural students. In this program, English is introduced in the early grades but not formally taught until second grade. Phalen Lake warmly welcomes parents and others to our Family Room – a place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, meet other parents, and learn how to become involved at school. The friendly bilingual staff (Hmong, Spanish, and Karen) are involved in all aspects of school life and even make home visits to our families. 

Your donation will help provide Phalen Lake students with supplies, tools and learning opportunities beyond the exceptional curriculum they already receive. Thank you for considering a gift to our school.
