Minneapolis Public School District Reviews

I really enjoyed the community of the Minneapolis school district. I spent kindergarten through 12th grade with them and every year they showed an interest in the students and their needs. On every first day of high school, district representatives would stand outside the school along with teachers and other community members to welcome students back to high school. It was very sweet and was just one of the ways the district was there for us!

I attend Patrick Henry High. My experience with the school was like a self-discovery journey. There are always staff to help you because the staff understood that students had lives outside of school and that our personal lives CAN impact our education, whether they were positive or negative impact. They wanted to build a relationship with their students. The students were also very open & welcoming. Many students were from the North side & had been in the North side all of their lives. It was very apparent that many students had grown up together and would most likely make lifelong friends. This didn't stop the student body from welcoming others. The school building was old, by the time I graduate in 2020, the school would have been standing for 95+ years. This did not diminish the new feeling of warmth & excitement every coming school year. My overall experience has been an unforgettable & positive one, it's true that high school would be the golden years of our young adult life.
I have been a student in Minneapolis public school for four years which has been a lot of learning experience socially, mentally, and academically. Something that I really like about Minneapolis Public School is that they provide so many support systems through teachers and collaborative for students like me who are involved in sports and struggles with their grades and personal life. Every staff member is willing to listen and help us work through our problems which gives us a hope for better things. One thing that I would change about this district would be the amount of fights that happens because could really affect our learning environment in a negative way. Also I would like to see a little bit change in our lunch food because we are served almost the same things everyday in a week. Not every student end up eating lunch because of having the same thing everyday.
