    I work at Minnehaha and my children have been there since 3 year old preschool. We love the teachers and how they care for the whole child while also provided interesting and engaging curriculum. As an employee, I feel so blessed to work here. I am surrounded by smart, passionate people who care about children and their futures. I plan to be around until my twins graduate in 2032!

    My daughter just started 4PK at Minnehaha. She is excited to go every day, she is learning so much, and she is making great friends. She told me she knows her teachers love her. We are so grateful for the excellent care and wise teaching she is receiving at Minnehaha Academy!
    This school is warm and welcoming. It is advertised as Christian but is very accepting of people of all backgrounds, faiths and beliefs. The school is college preparatory and rigorous in its coursework, but not unmanageable. Minnehaha has many extracurricular activities including but not limited to sports. The school is extremely accommodating of students who need a little extra help whether that be with physical disabilities, psychological issues or other issues. The school could improve on its college counseling department. There are only two college counselors for the entire school, so they are extremely overworked and often don't have the needed time to give to each student. The upper school campus has been completely rebuilt in 2019 after a devastating explosion several years earlier. You were really able to see the school come together through the explosion. It showed the true "Redhawk spirit" (the school's mascot).
