Southwest Senior High School
#30 Best Public High School Teachers in Minnesota
- Minneapolis Public School District, MN
- Rating 3.74 out of 5 393 reviews
Alum: While Southwest has a great reputation for its arts, testing and location, it is not the best school out there. The academics and teachers are great if you are a student pursuing. But if you look deeper there are big disparities between the honors level classes and the standard classes. There are students looking to graduate high school and move into the working world while another set of students is looking to apply to colleges. These two paths mean that the ~400 students per class may never see or know of eachother when they see eachother walking at graduation. A problem with southwest is that the teachers are mostly White and teach to White students and their background. There is little familiarity and comfort when teaching to students of other backgrounds. This can be seen in how the discipline students from the teacher level to the administrator level. This puts those students at a disadvantage and in a distrusting relationship with the higher ups.

Perpich Center for Arts Education
#34 Best Public High School Teachers in Minnesota
- Public School
- Golden Valley, MN
- Rating 3.82 out of 5 138 reviews
Senior: I applied to Perpich for my upperclassmen years there wasn't any hesitation to apply. The public school that I was attending at the time offered limited art classes, all of which I had already taken. I was ready to learn as much as I possibly could and to meet and connect with as many young artists as I could.
I started my junior year at the Perpich Arts Education Center as a full-time on-campus student. The environment at Perpich celebrates artist ideas not just from a visual arts perspective, but also from music, dance, theater, and literature. I was given the opportunity to explore my own artistic voice through a variety of mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, film and digital photography, graphic design, jewelry design, and portfolio development, which gave me a foundation to venture into mediums that I’m passionate about. The ability to stay at the dorm on campus gave me the time, tools, and studio facilities to continue to develop my work outside of the classroom.

- Hopkins Public Schools, MN
- Rating 3.87 out of 5 385 reviews
Senior: My experience at Hopkins High School has been excellent. The teachers genuinely care about the students - not only that they are learning the material but also how they are doing as people. There is a wide array of courses offered, with many AP and honors classes along with many interesting electives. There are many sports and clubs and it is very easy to start a club of your own. The school lunches are truly delicious and the facilities are amazing. I am so happy that I got to be a student at Hopkins - it is an outstanding district!

Robbinsdale Armstrong Senior High School
#253 Best Public High School Teachers in Minnesota
- Robbinsdale Public School District, MN
- Rating 3.48 out of 5 369 reviews
Senior: Armstrong High School is an incredible school with a lot of amazing teachers. The connections I have been able to make with my teachers have truthfully impacted me in indescribable ways. I am able to talk to my math teachers about my college application process, my English teachers about something funny that happened in an earlier hour, and my Science teachers about how my day is going. My teachers are passionate about their content, and interested in learning about their students.
The dedication to academics that Armstrong provides is phenomenal. Advanced Placement (AP) classes are highly encouraged to all students, and there are many resources that allow students to get help, which shows the dedication to students.
While every public school has its issues, the culture of "let's fix it," allows Armstrong to maintain a strong foundation. I feel extremely lucky to attend a school that has allowed me to grow not only as a student, but as a person!
