Thinking about moving to the area? ENROLLMENT INFORMATION
The Minnetonka Public School District is one of the best performing school districts in Minnesota and the nation. Our students attend one of six elementary schools (grades K-5), two middle schools (grades 6-8) and one high school (grades 9-12).
With innovative high achievement programs and extensive supports, we plan for the success of each student:
- K-12 Chinese & Spanish Language Immersion or English-only Instruction Options
- Personalized, child-centered education provides each student with guidance and support
- Challenging learning experiences such as Navigator, Wings, accelerated math and reading help students unlock their potential
- Focus on technology literacy includes K-5 computer coding and 1:1 iPads in grades 5-12
Some students have academic skills, cognitive abilities, leadership abilities and creative talents beyond their classmates. Advanced learners have the right to an educational environment where their unique education needs are planned for and respected. Advanced learning programs are designed to meet the needs of these students.
Advanced learning students are children and youth with outstanding talent relative to others of their age, experience or environment. Advanced learning students are identified through a screening process that is multi-dimensional, including teacher observation, parent input, student input, classroom performance, and standardized test information. Parents/guardians who have questions or concerns about their child and services should contact their child’s classroom teacher, school Advanced learning teacher or Diane Rundquist, Director of Advanced Learning Programs at 952-401-5100.
