Our Vision
Link transforms the Twin Cities alongside a generation of leaders equipped to build a more just and inclusive society.

A Community with an Expanded Definition of Student Success

Across all content areas, Link Public Schools will provide academic experiences that support students in becoming sharp, inquiring, and creative thinkers who are driven by purpose, critically conscious, and excited to collaborate inclusively. Literacy, problem-solving, and evidence-based thinking are intertwined within all disciplines.

Throughout all academics at Link, the developmental as well as the social-emotional wellness of students is centered to create a holistic experience for our youth. Our laser-like attention to data never replaces a student with a number or test score. Equipped with this academic experience, students will be ready to navigate college, career, and life.

A Foundational Approach

Students will build a strong foundation in the habits, skills, and mindsets for success and persistence in high school and beyond.

Liberal Arts

Link Public Schools will center its academic programming around the liberal arts and will primarily offer academic subjects such as literature, mathematics, visual and musical arts, and social and physical sciences.

A Laptop Per Child

The pandemic has taught our society many things, including the lesson that, technology and connectivity for students are necessities, not luxuries. At Link, students will have laptops to continue to build upon and refine computer literacy.  

Advisory Model

Every Link student takes part in an advisory that meets daily to support their social, emotional, academic, and purpose development. Advisory builds a community where students explore who they are, what they love, and the impact they want to have.
