About Us


Welcome to Northport Elementary! Our school welcomes and celebrates students of many different cultures and backgrounds who cultivate their passions in our peaceful community school.


At Northport Elementary School we ground ourselves in being a BEAR (Belong, Empathize, Achieve, Respect). Those words allow staff and students to empower one another to create a culture of learning through high expectations and positive relationships in order to achieve their unique potential.

A Northport Bear develops a strong sense of cultural understanding and empathy; they learn to respect both themselves and the experience of others.

Our teachers capitalize on the many cultures in our school to make learning meaningful and relevant. Throughout the school year, many events bring our school community together to celebrate our diversity – and our deep connection to one another.

Northport Bears have remarkable opportunities to learn in many different ways. One of those pathways is our dual language immersion program where we offer grades K-2 intensive instruction in Spanish and English – and have plans to add a new grade each year until the program is schoolwide. The program pairs students from different language backgrounds in order to enhance each other’s learning as they become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural.

Northport’s staff support students as they:

  • learn to read, write, and respond to the world
  • learn to think creatively about solving problems
  • develop number sense
  • build social skills and confidence in themselves

Our full-day pre-K is the only full-day program in Robbinsdale Area Schools. The program is for students who turn four years old before Sept. 1.
