About Eden Prairie Schools
Eden Prairie is a rapidly growing suburban area on the southwest side of Minneapolis. Like the community, the school district is growing rapidly too. Enrollment, currently over 10,300 students, has more than doubled in the last 10 years.
Students attend eight district schools. Central Kindergarten Center is home to most kindergarten students. Grades 1-4 are divided into four quadrant schools, each with 775 to 875 students. All district fifth and sixth graders attend Oak Point Intermediate School, providing a transition from elementary to secondary. Seventh and eighth graders attend Central Middle School, while Eden Prairie High School is home to grades 9 through 12. The district also has a thriving Early Childhood Family Education Center and an active Early Childhood Special Education program.
The district employs 1300+ staff members and is one of the largest employers in Eden Prairie. Our vital teaching staff is dedicated to quality schools and focused on the vision of success for all students. Eden Prairie has a dynamic staff development program helping teachers build upon their current skills. Throughout the district, staffs are involved in site-based decision making and teachers are offered the opportunity to serve on curriculum review committees. All district schools are accredited by the North Central Accrediting Association, and Eden Prairie High School is a 1994-96 National Blue Ribbon School.
The school district has strong community support. Parent volunteers help in all district schools and serve on a number of advisory committees. Voters have supported referenda to build schools to accommodate the growing population. An extensive building and remodeling program has resulted in facilities which support the schools' quality educational programs. Work has recently been completed which involved remodeling/adding to five schools. The most recent referendum, passed in September 1997, also financed technology improvements, an activities center and turfed field, and a kindergarten multipurpose room.
