Battle Creek Elementary School is nestled into Battle Creek Regional Park. The wooded hills, trails and wetlands provide a unique opportunity for students to learn firsthand about Minnesota's many natural resources. We emphasize hands-on learning by using the peaceful forest and groomed trails of the park for activities ranging from pond studies to nature walks. In addition to core subjects, students have opportunities in music, physical education and Science. Learn more...
