Burnsville Eagan Savage School District
Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 is a dynamic and innovative suburban public school district serving approximately 9,000 students. In fact, the district’s innovation has attracted the attention of major corporations (Google and Best Buy) and national publications. The District includes 10 elementary schools with kindergarten through grade 5 (some with voluntary pre-kindergarten programs), three middle schools with grades 6-8, one high school with grades 9-12 and one alternative high school. The District also includes one of the most extensive Community Education programs in the state, serving newborns up through senior citizens.
Future Ready / Community Strong
Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 is in the midst of a major redesign called “Vision One91” that involves school buildings, programming, technology and more, all aimed at preparing today’s students to be Future Ready and Community Strong. Many of these changes began with the 2016-17 school year including:
- Major additions and renovations at Burnsville High School, including a new fabrication lab, flexible learning spaces, technology-enhanced classrooms, new science classrooms, an activities center, and more.
- A new “Pathways” model at Burnsville High School that encourages students to explore their interests, find their passions and plan for their future success in college and careers.
- A new STEA3M Middle School model that combines the best of our previous magnet programs – STEM, gifted programing, arts and AVID – and makes them available for all students at all three middle schools.
- Expanded learning technology, including 1-to-1 personal devices for high school students (2016-17) and middle school students (2017-18), as well as increased devices and the addition of digital learning specialists at all elementary schools teaching vital tech skills.

Students learn best in a safe and supportive environment. Each of our schools fosters that type of culture. BES sets consistent expectations throughout the school, uses a common language when talking about behavior, and focuses on reinforcing good choices that students make every day. Nicollet Middle School, in particular, has been a leader in the state in implementing these practices with their student body.
