Bdote Learning Center | GiveMN

A Minnesota Public Charter School

An elementary K-6, year-round Dakota and Ojibwe language immersion school


Bdote Learning Center is an elementary K-6, public charter school located in Minneapolis, MN. We are a year-round Dakota and Ojibwe language immersion school.

Our students' learning is place-based and experiential. Students are immersed in rigorous, active, interdisciplinary learning projects, often involving learning outside of school walls. Curriculum content is tied to the geographical surroundings of the school, the local history, landscape, ecology, and Native languages and cultures.

     We strive to develop a love of lifetime learning, language and culture, and to create a college preparatory path for all students.
