MINNEAPOLIS PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) is unique for its diversity. Because of the district’s emphasis on “school choice,” families may choose from several different neighborhood schools and magnet programs in MPS. Neighborhood schools have become more specialized, reflecting the interests of their surrounding communities. To learn more about each school program, call the schools to set up tours. Note that many tours hadn’t been scheduled by the time the Journal went to press. For more information on school options, go to highschoolchoice.mpls.k12.mn.us. The 2008/09 school choice information for high school will not be available until early November. Schools are also hosting tours and open houses to show off facilities and answer questions. Many school tours include a walk-through of a classroom, common spaces such as the library, cafeteria and gym, and rooms that are unique to the school.
