You can't miss with the Hopkins Schools, District 270. They have won many awards for educational, arts, and athletic excellence. The schools are diverse and welcoming to students of all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The special education programs are second to none. Many Advanced Placement classes are offered, and overall, the AP scores are among the highest in the state, if not the nation. The big plus is the 4 block schedule. Students have an opportunity to earn 16 credits per year- no other schedule offers so many credit earning opportunities, allowing students to take a wide variety of classes or advance quickly in academic areas such as mathematics and science. Any student can advance to AP Calculus BC and AP statistics. For a diverse, accepting student body with a first class curriculum and the best teachers anywhere, you cannot do better than Hopkins schools. Over two-thirds of the city of Minnetonka is in this district, not the Minnetonka school district, so chances are a home in Minnetonka will be in the Hopkins district and all will be close enough to open enroll if you value the diversity of the student body and the academic programs available are important to you.
