Independent Learners and Skillful Problem Solvers
Our students learn to read, write, speak and listen in
both Spanish and English. In this model, each child gains confidence as both a
first-language model and a second-language learner. English-only instruction is
also available in our historic sunlit building, named for the late Senator Paul
Wellstone and his wife Sheila. Our goal is to educate students to be proficient
in language that expresses knowledge, opinions, and creative ideas that can
change and benefit the community. We have ample computer resources, a
well-equipped science lab and a welcoming, colorful library. With physical
fitness opportunities both outdoors and in, Wellstone also emphasizes the arts,
partnering with museums and performing organizations.
Wellstone Elementary is on the corner of Rice and Lawson
Streets, serving students in pre-k through fifth grade. Wellstone students are
taught to exercise critical thinking skills and to facilitate student-led
discussions around content themes and social issues. Student leadership is
woven into the curriculum at all levels.
