    Featured Review: Alum says As I reflect back on my experience at SPA, as a student who attended K-12, I feel so grateful. SPA saved my life - literally.

    Minnehaha Academy

    Blue checkmark.

    Private School,

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN,

    PK, K-12,

    105 Niche users give it an average review of 4.4 stars.

    Featured Review: Parent says We have 3 children who attend MA - 2 in the Lower School, 1 in the Middle School. We moved them from a local public school in fall of 2020. Things we appreciate: 1. Ability to cater to both my straight A student AND my child who needs extra supports. 2. Teachers who know my kids. I mean truly take time to KNOW them. Our first conferences left me shedding a tear about how much they care about my kids. 3. Smaller class sizes. We all understand the importance of this. 4. I have confidence decisions from administration have been planned, thought out, etc. Even if I don’t agree 100% I do feel like they go through a due process. 5. MA is a Christian school but I don’t feel like religion is being “forced” on my kids. What could use improvement:Increase diversity - staff and student body. There is work around this, but needs to be mentioned!.
