About Maxfield

Maxfield staff wear orange on Unity Day

Maxfield Elementary is a small school serving approximately 320 students in grades Pre-K through 5. Each year we grow stronger through the involvement of families and the community. At Maxfield, our teachers tap into each student’s curiosity, enthusiasm and imagination to engage them fully in learning. Our students experience a full range of learning activities, from gaining skills in reading and writing to performing with African drums. Students in grades Kindergarten through grade 5 attend specialist classes in Phy Ed (Gym), Science, and Art. In addition, through our partnership with the Cultural Wellness Center, students in grades 1 through 5 attend Culture class. During Culture class students learn about each other's cultures and are encouraged to learn about their own culture through self study with their family.

Everyone is welcome at Maxfield and we’re proud of the parents who visit their child's classroom, families who attend our school events and our volunteers and community partners who help students during the school day. Maxfield is, above all, a community that works together to help our children succeed.

Located in the Summit-University area, Maxfield Elementary School provides a unique educational experience that combines best practices in academics with a focus on the urban learner. We've been in the Rondo neighborhood for over 125 years, taking our children through many challenges as the City of St. Paul, and even our country have changed. That's why former students now teach at Maxfield or send their children and grandchildren to learn in the same community they did. Through great teaching, student leadership opportunities, technology, science, and the arts, Maxfield Elementary School provides students in grades Pre-K through five with a well-rounded educational program.
