    Minnetonka is in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, the high school has over 3,000 students in attendance . Minnetonka is an incredible place to be for competitive student. From IB, AP, PSEO, research, to vantage programs the range of available classes is astounding. Of course, International Studies, a course where students get to learn about and subsequently travel to a country, is also available. Clearly, the wide variety of classes available points to how many resources Minnetonka wants to offers its students.

    There are also many art classes available at Minnetonka. The school takes its art classes as seriously as regular classes, and invests into them. From photography to jewelry, Minnetonka works incredibly hard to help students find their passion. There are also AP Art classes that are easily accessible to students. The vast resources at Minnetonka point to how hard the faculty work to ensure the success and exploration of every student who steps into its building!

    Had an amazing experience at Minnetonka High School - there is something for everyone. It was my first experience in a public school, having attended a private school preschool through eighth grade. So I went from 26 students in my class to over 900. It was like a college campus having so many choices for elective classes. There is really no reason for someone not to be able to find an interest they would like to pursue. Thank you Minnetonka Senior High School!
    Great teachers, a variety of class options, resources and accommodations for all types of learners. Have accelerated programs including international baccalaureate and language immersion. Overall, a great school that has something for all learners!
