About Eden Prairie Schools
Eden Prairie Schools, located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, is an incredible place for students to learn and grow, and staff to develop, grow, and excel. This district has enjoyed a long-standing reputation of excellence that is built on high expectations for our students and staff.
We believe it is our purpose to create an environment of care and support where each student is inspired every day. We can do this best by knowing them as learners and individuals, recognizing their skills and motivations, and pushing them to excel. At Eden Prairie Schools, students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning while exploring their interests and finding passions.
Eden Prairie Schools is looking forward to the future to ensure our students are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. Dr. Tony Wagner, co-author of Most Likely to Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era and current Expert In Residence at Harvard University’s new Innovation Lab says, “Students who only know how to perform well in today’s education system—get good grades and test scores, and earn degrees—will no longer be those who are most likely to succeed. Thriving in the twenty-first century will require ...real competencies, far more than academic credentials. Now, adults need to be able to ask great questions, critically analyze information, form independent opinions, collaborate, and communicate effectively. These are the skills essential for both career and citizenship.”
That’s why we are preparing our students for skills employers demand. Our classrooms emphasize personalized learning and the 4C’s: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
Our strategic plan guides all our work and sets us on a path to inspire each student every day. The plan includes lofty goals where all of us - staff members, parents, students and community members - work together to achieve the very best for our students.
