    As any decent school district, the education is fine but the way the BOE uses open enrollment to fill their coffers is negatively impacting our children’s school experience. Schools are busting at the seams, classes are conducted in hallways and actual classrooms are shoved in libraries so the district can enjoy money from people who for some reason want to enroll their children from outside the district. The language immersion programs are a huge attraction from these open enrolled families but if your child is in a non immersion classroom, prepare to feel neglected (it is a non immersion classroom shoved in a windowless room in the library at our school, naturally).

    My overall experience at Minnetonka has been nothing short of my idealistic high school experience. I have gotten the chance to have been taught and mentored by exceptional staff. The teachers, counselors, paraprofessionals and other staff members truly have the students best interest in mind and want to help the students excel while in high school and in the future. There are so many clubs, activities, and extracurriculars to get involved in. There is something for every type of student whether you are into robotics, chess, basketball etc. The kids create an overall inclusive and supportive environment.
    My time at MHS was great! I loved singing in the choir and my relationships with my teachers. In addition, I took some IB courses junior and senior year and was able to earn some college credits. Those courses helped me become a better writer and I felt prepared for the workload and my writing intensive classes!
