The Anoka-Hennepin School District serves families living in 13 communities north of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

A proud tradition
Community leaders from small towns and rural areas recognized the need to provide students with the best education possible back in 1952 when they voted overwhelmingly in favor of consolidating into Anoka-Hennepin School District. Prior to that time, students throughout the area were educated in many small schools scattered throughout a largely rural area. Most went into the city of Anoka for high school.

As population growth spurred development of the suburban communities of Anoka-Hennepin, the school district grew rapidly in size, from approximately 4,000 students at the time the district formed, to more than 39,000 today.

Community support
Throughout years of tremendous growth in the district, citizens have supported young people by approving bond issues year after year to build schools. That support continues today in the form of voter-approved levies to pay a portion the local share of operating schools.

Community support is also evident in the thousands of citizens who support students by attending school events and volunteering in the district’s schools. More than 10,000 volunteers annual contribute nearly 185,000 hours of time in Anoka-Hennepin Schools.
