Letter From The Principal

Dear Families,

Welcome to North Metro Flex Academy! NMFA is a learning community where students are challenged… and belong! We value strong relationships and high expectations for both academics and behavior. Our 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. We strive to respect our students’ uniqueness, cultural heritage, and ideas.

Our learning community has experienced multiple challenges in the past 2 years. In addition to the Pandemic and COVID related challenges, there has been the added tension and struggle of racism and violence in our country, our state, and our community. As educators, we have a unique and critical responsibility to advocate for each child, to be sure every child gets the support needed to learn and to realize aspirations.

As a leader in this learning community, I am called to challenge each of us to find ways to advocate and support every child every day. Sometimes the work seems overwhelming as we learn more about a long history of unkindness towards some of our students and families.

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

Currently, NMFA has a student population of approximately 215 students in grades K-8. We are staffed with 25 licensed/certified staff and 10 classified/support staff. In addition to core subjects (Reading/English/Language Arts/Math/Science/Social Studies) students have the benefit of weekly art, music and physical education classes. We have an array of services and supports for our students. Numerous students are supported by our Title 1 teachers for Reading and Math, our English Language (ELL) teacher, our experienced Special Education staff, and our cultural liaisons. For the Fall we are planning for additional supports to extend our differentiated instruction and our high potential learners.

We encourage all parents/guardians to maintain regular communication with their child’s teachers and be actively involved in the school community. Checking the school calendar, School Messenger messages, Class Tag, the website and our Facebook page for events and activities will help keep you informed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office by calling (651) 300-6300.

We are looking forward to meeting your child and helping foster a love of learning!
Debbie Kranz, Principal
