About Our School

Minnewashta Elementary: A great place to learn and grow.

Our elementary school currently has more than 700 students in kindergarten through 5th grade and 80 staff members. As part of the Minnetonka Public Schools system, we are the western most school in the district, located on the scenic south shore of Lake Minnetonka. We are a neighborhood school with a high level of collaboration between teachers and parents. Our parent community is very involved in the students' lives and learning, providing the best possible learning environment for children.

In addition to providing an outstanding traditional elementary education taught in English, families at Minnewashta have an option of enrolling in a Spanish Language Immersion Option beginning in kindergarten. Students may only enter the immersion program in kindergarten, unless they demonstrate an appropriate level of Spanish fluency to enter at a later grade. Families who choose the immersion option are asked to make a six year commitment to the program.

Our Vision

To be a school where:

  • Everyone respects themselves and others
  • Everyone is safe and having fun
  • Everyone does their very best
