We are located on the NE corner of Lake Street and 27th Ave in Minneapolis in the Coliseum Building. We are on the 2nd floor, above a Denny's Restaurant and an HCMC clinic.
Once you've found the building, the best place to enter is on Lake Street near the "Free English Classes" sign. Follow the signs to the elevator; our main office is around the corner to the left.
If you drive, you may find parking in our lot behind the building. You can park in any space with signs labeled "reserved," “3 hr parking” or “15 minute parking.” You’ll also find ample free parking on 28th Avenue, 29th Street or another side street. Please refrain from parking in the neighboring parking lot (across the alley, behind the pawn shop) after 6 PM--we do not have access to that lot overnight and your car could be towed. Do not park in the charter school parking lot (the former Rainbow Foods building)--we do not have access to that lot at any time and again, your car may be towed.
Our learning center is conveniently located on a high-frequency bus route and is a couple blocks from the Blue Line light rail. Find the school using routes 7, 21, 53, or 55 (Blue Line light-rail train).
There are bike racks located outside of Denny's restaurant and African Paradise restaurant on Lake Street. You may also bring your bike upstairs with you and we can find a place for it while you're here.
