About Minneapolis School Finder

Minneapolis School Finder aims to help parents make informed decisions when selecting a school for their children. It provides objective and reliable information about schools across our community so families can find schools that are the best fit.

We make it simple to find the best-fit school

As the only local guide that includes comprehensive information on schools – regardless of type – across our community, Minneapolis School Finder also offers tips for choosing a school, questions to ask when touring schools, application and enrollment guidance, and a list of schools closing the opportunity gap. 

In addition to Minneapolis School Finder, we’ve also gathered other tools that can help your family find – or deepen your relationship at – your best-fit school.


How to read school profiles

School profiles include contact information, academic performance, highlights, and student and teacher demographics. Although an entire school can't be summed up in one page, the profiles are a starting place to find a school that might be a good fit for your child.

Profiles include the special features of a school

We lead a broad coalition of advocates, families, educators and funders working together to ensure that all students – especially the 30,000 Minneapolis kids most in-need – attend a rigorous and relevant school.

We created Minneapolis School Finder following two years of listening to parents, collaborating with partners and co-designing solutions to address the gaping void that they face:  Comprehensive, well-rounded and reliable information on schools, from programs to academics and unique features to demographics.
