Our Programs

Poplar Bridge is working to become a computer science immersion school that harnesses the power of computer science to master the Minnesota content standards while solving real world problems. We will integrate national computer science standards, a design thinking framework, and computational thinking skills, beginning in the 2019 school year.

ELA offers a quality extended-day preschool experience for three, four, and five year olds. Nurturing instructors provide a variety of learning opportunities that focus on social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

Early Learners Academy

Our teachers integrate elements of science, technology, engineering, art, and math across the curriculum. In addition we host two STEAM Activity Days each year to offer special opportunities to students. We value our partnerships with Richardson Nature Center, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, and Science From Scientists.

All grade 5 students have the opportunity to participate in band and orchestra.
