History of Minnesota New Country School - Elementary:
Located in Henderson, MN, MNCS-Elementary opened its doors to students for the first time on August 26, 2013. The Elementary has 85 students enrolled in Kindergarten through sixth grade, from 13 surrounding communities within a 45-mile radius.
As a tuition-free public charter school, MNCS receives state funding and provides bus transportation to the communities it serves.
MNCS Elementary follows a project-based curriculum where students each receive an individualized learning plan. While there is still a focus on basic skills such as math, reading and writing, MNCS teachers also focus heavily on 1) environmental experiential learning; 2) project-based learning; 3) responsive classroom; 4) character education; and 5) technology.
MNCS is located in the lovely town of Henderson, MN. It is located on Hwy 93 and Hwy 19 in Sibley County, in the heart of the Minnesota River valley.
