You’re visiting the only guide that provides families with information on all schools across Minneapolis.

We believe that great schools have the power to change lives. Students in Minneapolis who graduate from a high-performing school are six times more likely to earn a postsecondary degree, resulting in an additional $900,000 in earnings throughout their lifetime.

We invite you to use this guide to help find a school that meets the academic & social-emotional needs of your child, one that will prepare them to thrive in their life, career, and community.

Now in its 5th edition, Minneapolis School Finder answered a call from families for more transparent & parent-friendly school quality information. Over the years, Great MN Schools has worked with parents & community partners to improve the information we provide.

Included are profiles of 15X schools, with information on academic performance, a guide to help you on your journey to find a great school, as well as an explanation about how the Minneapolis district’s implementation of its Comprehensive District Design, or “CDD,” will impact enrollment in district schools.

We encourage you to use the new interactive tools to help you find the best-fit school for your child.

We believe every child deserves a school that sets them up for success in life—a school that delivers rigorous academic outcomes & offers a safe, relevant learning environment. We hope Minneapolis School Finder helps you find it!
