Mrs. Myers was, by far, the best teacher I have ever had. She is passionate and understanding. She did an excellent job structuring lessons such that students who were having a difficult time understanding or following lessons could succeed. She also holds students accountable for their work and their actions.
Minnehaha Academy was a great school for me, academically and athletically. I took a few AP classes, which varied in difficulty. I think that, while all of the teachers at MA seemed to be passionate about the school and their teaching, sometimes their methods were a bit unorthodox. While I acknowledge that it is a Christian school, I don't feel that it is important to point out "God's work" in every class session. Mrs. Myers (English) is absolutely wonderful.
I have been at Minnehaha Academy for 10 years (since 1st grade) and absolutely love it here. The academic rigor, Christian values and caring environment are emphasized at Minnehaha. Some of my favorite aspects of the school are the teachers, the challenging classes, CFE (cultural field experience) and the athletic program.
AP and Honors classes give more homework than regular classes, but I think that you can still find time to participate in extracurriculars and have a social life no matter your course-load. Teachers at Minnehaha understand that many students take multiple APs/Honors, so they do the best to give the right amount of homework.
Minnehaha offers 18 AP classes and many other honors/enriched classes that challenge many students. The culture at Minnehaha encourages people to be smart and challenge themselves in a very positive way.
I think that everyone who walks through the doors of Minnehaha Academy is immediately welcomed into the community. Students are very caring toward one another and push each other to be the best version of themselves that they can be.
Minnehaha Academy is a fantastic grades PreK-12 school, combining excellence in high level college prep education with strong Christian values. My kids have absolutely thrived in this positive and friendly community. From the top-notch teachers to the awarded fine arts, cultural field experience program, athletics, and many other extra-curricular offerings, Minnehaha has something for every student to be involved and they can do it all. The facilities are beautiful along the Mississippi River in a nice Minneapolis neighborhood, and the upper school will soon be adding a new STEM facility to the campus. The school offers a lot of financial aid and scholarships, which is helpful for families of all income levels. We highly recommend Minnehaha Academy for anyone looking for a fantastic education that caters to the whole person. We are so happy with this school and love to share our experience in hopes that other students may also benefit from MA like our kids have.
Minnehaha Academy is a phenomenal school on all levels. They are excellent in academics, arts, and athletics. Most of my lifelong friends are not from college, but from my time at Minnehaha. I'd highly recommend Minnehaha to anyone!
Minnehaha is an awesome school! The academics and teachers are great. The sports and coaches are great! The arts program and facilities are super. I'd recommend this inviting Christian school to anyone! Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.
