The Minneapolis School System

Minneapolis, Minnesota, is part of the Twin Cities along with St. Paul. It is the largest city of the pair, with a population of about 422,000. The larger Twin Cities metropolitan area has an estimated population of 3.6 million. The nearly 35,000 students within the city attend one of the approximately 100 public schools in the Minneapolis Public Schools district. In addition to the public schools available in the city, parents can also choose from more than 20 private schools, or they can send their children to one of the schools in a neighboring district due to Minnesota’s open enrollment statute.

In such a large district, it can be difficult for parents to know where to turn if they discover their child is not achieving their academic potential. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with experienced Minneapolis tutors. In addition to securing the assistance of a personal tutor, the freedom to choose which school your child attends can be an advantage for parents. Because you can select the school your child attends, it is essential to be aware of how the schools nearby compare to one another. Here are some assessment scores for the biggest Minneapolis high schools:

Minneapolis Test Scores

All Minneapolis students have the opportunity to take a career and college readiness test. These tests include the nationally recognized ACT and SAT. However, Minneapolis students must also prepare for the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) or the alternate Minnesota Test of Academic Skills (MTAS), which cover reading, mathematics, and science. These exams come in grades three through eight as well as once during the high school years.

Even for children who are generally doing well in school, standardized exams can present a challenge. For some this will be due to testing anxiety, while for others the issue may be due to a lack of mastery in a specific subject area. A personal tutor can help your child regardless of the academic challenges they face.

While sending your child to a highly ranked school can improve their odds of academic success, it doesn’t necessarily mean that a child who attends a poorly rated school must struggle. However, it is good to know where schools stand. The table below identifies some of the most highly ranked schools in Minneapolis and shows how they compare to other schools in the state:
