Banaadir Academy is a free K-8 charter school connected to MTCS (Minnesota Transitions Charter School). Located in North Minneapolis, our school is focused on serving 300+ Somali students in our community. MTCS provides funding for field trip assistance, library materials, classroom resources, an after-school academic program and more. Teachers and volunteers coordinate programs, activities and events that promote learning and school spirit throughout the school year. We provide students with hands on experiences, great education and prepare students for their future.
Our desire is for our students to be provided with an environment that is safe, caring, and conducive to learning. Since we have many English learners, our ELL staff strives to provide instruction for academic and linguistic competence. We also offer free Arabic lessons to all of our students from kindergarten to fifth grade.
Banaadir Academy, where academic excellence and cultural values coexist!
