Outstanding Achievement at All Levels

Student achievement in Minnetonka is at an all-time high and ranks among the best in the nation.

The foundation of learning begins early in preschool and elementary school (grades K-5). Our students gain more than a year’s academic growth in a year’s time. Our average 5th grader is six grade levels ahead in reading and math compared to national norms.

Our two middle schools (6th-8th grade) offer flexibility and support for students to discover talents and explore interests. Among west metro school districts, our students rank #1 in reading, #2 in science and in the top three for math on state tests. Success goes beyond academics: More than 80% of middle school students are involved in at least one after-school activity, fostering healthy social-emotional development.
