About Tonka Online

Your schedule, your time, your space

With Tonka Online, you complete coursework at your own pace, at whatever time you choose, all in the comfort of your own study space. Using familiar online learning tools like Schoology, you will complete work, collaborate with classmates, discuss topics with teachers and gain frequent feedback through online assessments.

Our courses, our teachers, our high standards

All Tonka Online courses are taught by experienced Minnetonka teachers. In fact, most teach the same class both online and in a Minnetonka High School classroom. Each course is designed specifically for online learning and meets the highest quality curricular expectations of the Minnetonka School District.

Make your personalized, four-year plan possible

By taking advantage of Tonka Online, you can complete required or preparatory courses during the summer, flex your schedule or pick up an additional class beyond the six-period day. By creatively mapping a four-year plan that includes Tonka Online, you now have the ability to complete three years of math in two years, take two music classes during the year, pursue electives that align with your passions or ensure time for signature programs (like VANTAGE, IB or Minnetonka Research) during junior and senior year.

What Tonka Online students are saying

"The feedback and ongoing encouragement was very helpful, especially while trying to complete a course during a short, busy time period!"

"I was super nervous about taking a class like this online, as I have taken one other online course (not through tonka) where there was no teacher and there was zero motivation to keep up with work. This course was the opposite! I felt like I really had a teacher who was engaged in the process of learning, who would send supplemental items if interested, and would communicate about class topics in a way that totally worked for an online course. I learned a lot and had fun at the same time!"

"My teacher really tried to make a connection with us, I feel like if I had a question she was always quick to respond. She gave a lot of helpful feedback on assignments and tests - sometimes even more than you would get in a brick and mortar class."

"I loved how it was easy to know where the assignment was and how the course was very organized."
