About UsEnrollment

Welcome to Big Picture Twin Cities Middle School!


Big Picture Twin Cities is an innovative, college preparatory charter middle school located in Brooklyn Center, MN. In our model of personalized learning, every student at Big Picture Twin Cities has an individually-tailored learning plan unique to them as a student.


With only 15 students per teacher, our students are known by their teachers and heavily supported in their learning. Every student is an individual – with unique strengths, needs, passions, and interests – and we believe that their learning should reflect that. 


We are a tuition-free public charter school serving 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. We are now enrolling students for the fall of 2017. Apply today!
