I have 3 boys at Phalen Lake Hmong Studies. I wanted a school that would teach my children the value of effort and hard work and to respect others. As well as learn how to live in a truly global society. Phalen Lake has done all of this. They have a Hmong culture program that lets the kids learn in depth about the Hmong culture always with an eye to using this learning to explore and learn about other cultures as well. This cultural education is supported by a staff that not only encourages students to work hard and do their best, but has the welfare of the students at heart. It is a fabulous environment for anyone.
