Welcome

Dowling Urban Environmental Learning Center is a Minneapolis Public Schools environmental magnet school for grades K through 5. We work to provide a social and academic climate that gives students a strong feeling of belonging. Our staff is highly qualified, extremely motivated, experienced, and very stable. We have high expectations for student achievement and our ultimate goal is to teach children how to teach themselves. In addition to our strong core curriculum of math, science, reading and core knowledge, along with environmental education, our students also enjoy participating in the following: general music,  visual arts,  physical education, media and computer skills, and 1st thru 5th grade swimming. Check us out, it's a great place to be!
