At Birch Grove Elementary School for the Arts, students learn through their passion for the arts!
Birch Grove provides a strong academic core with opportunities for students to create at many levels. Teaching through the arts helps students experience concepts rather than merely discussing or reading about them. The study of the arts has been linked to students’ increased critical and creative thinking skills, self-esteem, willingness to take risks and ability to work with others.
Birch Grove is a member of the Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) magnet school program.
Families are always welcome to tour Birch Grove! Please call 763-561-1374 to schedule a time that is convenient for you.
