Academic Partnerships at Hugo

  • As part of the Minnesota DNR School Forest Program, Hugo Elementary has designated nearly 4 acres that surround our school as the Hugo School Forest. Hugo students have the unique opportunity to explore math, art, science, language arts and geography as it relates to this outdoor classroom while gaining knowledge and developing respect of our natural world.
  • Kyle, from the White Bear Center for the Arts, comes to our schools five times throughout the year to enrich our K-1 students by providing them a gateway to diverse art experiences.
