The Community School of Excellence moved from an outdated and undersized space near the inner city of St. Paul, Minnesota to a newly designed state of the art Pre-K through 8th grade Hmong immersion charter program facility. The building incorporates Hmong culture both through exterior design elements and interior design and finishes. There are three stories of academic and administrative areas with a strong cultural component adhering to the school’s mission statement and teaching philosophy. In addition to the classrooms, the school has a three-station gymnasium, stage, multi-media center and community room. Building site features include a regulation soccer field, farm-to-table gardens, and two age-appropriate playgrounds.
