Blue Heron Elementary is a school where minds soar and dreams take flight!
Located in Lino Lakes, Blue Heron serves more than 700 students in a safe, respectful, and purposeful learning environment where all students have the opportunity and responsibility to grow to their full social, emotional and academic potential.
Blue Heron prides itself on strong relationships among staff, students and families. Our families are active partners, working with staff to instill high expectations for all students. The result is a high-achieving school with a welcoming, inclusive culture that attracts students from Centennial communities as well as many open enrollees from neighboring areas.
At Blue Heron, we value teamwork, leadership, a sense of community, innovation, discipline, communication and, most of all, fun!
Staff use whole group and strategic small group instruction to best meet student needs. We use data to drive everything we do. The result is a high-achieving school with a caring, collegial culture.
We meet our learners where they are at with the support they need. Blue Heron offers center-based special education programming and three levels of gifted and talented services.
Blue Heron staff are deeply committed to helping children grow. They make personal connections that understand, encourage and celebrate each student.
Our families are involved with our school in meaningful ways. Volunteering, engaging and participating in community events are just a few ways our community connects with our school.
