    Welcome (Anishinaabemowin)

    Welcome to Nett Elementary School, the home of the Eagles! We are proud and fortunate to have such a beautiful school tucked away in the north woods region of Minnesota. Our school motto, “Nett Lake Eagles are respectful, responsible, and ready to fly!” applies well beyond our classrooms! Our staff provides a learning environment with academic, social, emotional, and cultural learning opportunities in the most inspiring and nurturing way. We are proud to teach the roots of native life going back hundreds of years, learning about not only subsistence life, but also the admirable innovations that came out of Native American living.

    Nett Lake is equipped with the latest technology to enhance learning in a way that induces higher-order thinking, sparks imagination, and builds creative learners to prepare them for the future. We have an iPad for every one of our K–6 students! Our teachers stay well informed with professional development and professional learning communities to deliver creative, student-responsive curriculum and instruction. We have the lowest class sizes in the region. With our committed staff, we are able to provide the individual academic support your child needs. Our partners support us with programs such as the Boys and Girls Club, Head Start, and early learning readiness. Together, we are building a cohesive environment that centers around early learning, nurturing, and raising our kids.

    Your child will progress through Nett Lake Elementary School with an encouraging and supportive team of educators and school board. The elementary years are the formative years, so we strive to develop within each child a sense of respect, responsibility, and personal creativity to carry with him/her throughout the coming years!

    We value your interest in Nett Lake Elementary School. Please come for a visit! Baamaapii Miinwaa Kaawaabmin.
