Celebrating excellence

Barnum Elementary School is one of only seven schools to receive Minnesota School of Excellence validation this year. Since the program’s inception in 1986, 161 schools have received this honor. The endorsement remains effective for seven years, after which schools are encouraged to reassess themselves and re-apply for validation.
