About BC Schools

Small district. Big opportunities.
Brooklyn Center Community Schools is a small suburban school district located on the northwest border of Minneapolis. We pride ourselves in providing excellent academic programs to a diverse student population in pre-k through grade 12.
 
A full- service community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Our integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities. 
 
Mission
To equip every student with the knowledge, life-skills, and global perspectives to contribute to society and respond to the needs of an ever-changing world.
