"They have an excellent Hmong Studies curriculum. Students at Phalen have the opportunity to explore the Hmong culture, traditions and language... I've to admit, they have the best culturally relevant pedagogy I've ever seen."

The Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet is part of the St. Paul Public School District, a TERI Partner. Visit their Hmong Studies page to find out more about their program. Read more about TERI here for more information on the TERI Partner Network.
