Our school is one of the first and finest creative arts schools in Saint Paul. Every student experiences the arts through music, dance, drama, reading and even science and math. Our teachers love what they do and many are practicing artists themselves. Working with our community partners, students can participate in city-wide performances and experience the arts through the Ordway Center, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Ethnic Dance. Our young artists create art in the classroom and have many opportunities to display it for our lively community. After-school and recreational opportunities are available in our building and just a short walk away at McDonough Recreation Center. We welcome everyone at Mississippi and we are proud of our strong family and community involvement.
