Welcome! We are Birch Grove Community School, a tuition-free, public charter school serving students from our Saplings program through fifth grade. Located near the north shore of Lake Superior in the charming town of Tofte, Minnesota, we offer low student-teacher ratios and top-quality programs in an atmosphere of encouragement and caring. The curriculum we follow gives our students a strong academic foothold for a future of success and growth.
We encourage you to browse our website and get to know us a little better. Whether you’re a parent of a student already enrolled, or you’re considering Birch Grove as an educational choice for your family, we’re confident you’ll find what you’re looking for here.
"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow." - Anthony J. D'Angelo
At Birch Grove Community School, we foster a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Our students learn through community partnerships, intergenerational exchange, and peer leadership.
Our team of educators promote academic excellence by using our unique natural setting as a backdrop for learning. We strive to support students in becoming socially and environmentally responsible, self-directed, life-long learners.
The vision we are working towards includes quality curriculum, excellent staff, and committed families and community members. Every day we can see this manifested at our charter school. It is exciting to watch, and I am looking forward to being a part of the team.
Everyone looks forward to summer—the vacations, swimming, and longer days to play. Read more >>>
