Sibley Elementary

World-class Learning for Elementary Students Grades K–5

Sibley Elementary School, a neighborhood school serving the east side of Northfield, is a K–5 public school serving approximately 600 students. Sibley students and staff benefit from a strong Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) and countless volunteer hours donated by St. Olaf College and Carleton College students, Northfield High School students, retired teachers and the parent community.

The staff is intensely dedicated to offering a high quality, well-rounded education that strives to meet the specific needs of each student. We focus on empowering our students in their learning and building a solid foundation for their educational journeys.


Learning in Nature

The Sibley Marsh and prairie is a 5.5-acre nature preserve used for environmental education. The natural lands feature a wide variety of wildlife, trees, shrubs and plants native to Minnesota. Exposing students to nature:

  • Encourages movement and exploration
  • Reduces obesity
  • Stimulates creativity
  • Improves test scores
