Dear Community,

Welcome to North Metro Flex Academy!  NMFA is a learning community which values high expectations for both academics and behavior.  Our NMFA staff embraces students, families, and communities to build and develop well-rounded individuals who are independent critical thinkers and intrinsically motivated to be life-long learners.  We believe that all children can learn as we seek to make a difference in the lives of our students.

The teachers and staff at North Metro Flex are committed to providing a quality education for all students in a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment.  We are committed to ensuring that each child reaches his/her full potential.

Currently, NMFA has a student population of approximately 240 students in grades K-8.  We are staffed with 20 certified members of the teaching staff and 13 classified/support staff.  In addition to core academic subjects, students have the benefit of weekly art, music, and physical education classes.

We encourage all parents/guardians to maintain regular communications with their child’s teachers and be actively involved in the school community.  Checking the school calendar, website, and our Facebook page for events and activities will help keep you informed.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact the office by calling (612) 900-4435.  We are looking forward to meeting your child and helping foster a love of learning.
