ABOUT

Welcome to EXPO Elementary!

EXPO offers a friendly, happy environment filled with student artwork that welcomes one and all. EXPO is a lively school with an extraordinary range of resources.

Our teachers use the Science of Reading approach to help students build a strong literacy foundation through explicit phonics instruction, word recognition and language comprehension. 

At EXPO, your students learn not just academics but also social and emotional skills. We have a strong social- emotional program where our counselors create and teach lessons in classrooms that focus on healthy mindset and behaviors that support student mental, social/emotional and physical well-being.   

School-wide, we offer Resource Specialists for accelerated math, physical education, gifted and talented programs, Art, Science, and Outdoor Education   We also emphasize projects in arts, science, and technology/engineering – students might write and produce a play one year and build cars the next.

Your child's experience at Expo will include:

  • Looped Classrooms: EXPO students loop in grades 1 & 2 and 3 & 4; 5th grade then becomes a year of leadership. Students stay with their homebase teacher for two years. For example, you're child's first-grade teacher will be their second-grade teacher. This allows for a teacher and student to understand each other much more fully and with a continuity that helps them learn more effectively.
  • A leadership year in grade 5, in which our oldest students take on greater responsibility.  
  • Physical education, art, gifted and talented programs, Science, and Outdoor Education
  • Projects in arts, science and technology/engineering
  • Music programs through music residencies, a partnership with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and after-school music classes and lessons.
  • Treasure Island: The “best playground in the city," built and maintained by parents for the school and the neighborhood.
  • Discovery Club: Onsite program providing flexibility in scheduling for families, and enhancing students' social, academic, and play opportunities.
