Academic Programs

The Amigo Team is a multi-age choice program for children in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Grade.  Students interact with same and different age peers on a regular basis. Students enter the program in 2nd Grade and remain on the Amigo Team through their 4th Grade year.  Students work with the same three teachers during their three years on the team. Each homeroom is made up of students in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade. As a multi-age group the students have community building experiences, and attend recess and lunch.  The students are divided by grade level groups for literacy and math instruction, and also for music, physical education, and art.

Normandale Hills will host an Early Learners Academy program starting in 2020-21. Early Learners Academy is an all-day early education program for children ages 3-5 with a focus on kindergarten prep.
