Mankato Public School District Reviews

I got the chance to work with the school district through my college in Mankato. We got the chance to meet with some kids to get their opinion on things in their schools to help create a new logo and program for the new middle school, Prairie Winds. We also got to meet with some of the teachers and school board to learn about their current after school programs. By evaluating what people liked about the current programs, and what people thought was needed, we were able to come up with some basic outlines for the new middle school which included creating a new logo!

This school district has given me so many opportunities to better myself and to get involved with not only my school, but the other schools in the district. I went to Jefferson Elementary, Garfield middle school, Dakota Meadows middle school, and finally West high school. The staff and teachers do everything they can always for the benefit of the kids. I was on the homecoming court this past year at west and to see pretty much everyone from the district in the same gym with all of the alumni was incredible. This district has made me who I am today, and I couldn't be happier about that.
I really liked the diversity that the Mankato School District offers in all of their schools. It gives students a chance to learn about many other cultures other than their own. Mankato Public Schools has great teachers that genuinely care about each of their students and their success through high school and beyond into wherever their life takes them. The schools have a large number of extracurricular activities that all students can take part in.
