Our school is great. My both kids participate in Chinese immersion program and in a class with a regular curriculum. No bad word to say.

We love it. The entire staff is fabulous. We open enrolled from another district and they are so welcoming. Our daughter loves her kindergarten teacher. They do a great job of helping kids live up to their potential.

Amazing. We moved from another district and have been so happy. Our children are well cared for throughout the day and are receiving a world class education. The staff are so friendly and engaging. The anti-bullying policy is well thought out and makes for a safe and secure environment for all of the kids. We love Scenic Heights. Our soon to be 5th grader enjoys playing cello in the orchestra and our 1st grader has a great time in after the school Chinese program available through community ed..

Having spent five years at Scenic Heights through our daughter who is now in fourth grade, we are very pleased with the teachers, the principal, and the rest of the staff, from the paras, to the music and PE teachers, lunchroom staff and anyone we come in contact with at the school. They are all very involved, and seem content, enthusiastic and happy with their jobs, which translate into a calm, supportive learning environment for our kids. I have been able to stay involved as a parent, as much as I want, throughout our time at SHE and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff and seeing the kids grow. Math is emphasized, as is reading and social sciences. I like the involed PTA, all the fairs and festivities, the upbeat environment and the friendly faces. So very happy we ended up in this neighborhood, the only "drawback" is my husband's dream move to the mountains of CO will have to wait - we are not willing to move the kids away from this school or Mtka district.This is a good place to raise children!

Scenic Heights Elementary is a wonderful school with an excellent Chinese Immersion program in grades K-5. The principal is engaged and caring. The teaching staff is highly professional. Even the lunch and parking lot staffers are professional and pleasant. What a great place for kids to grow and learn!

The teachers at Scenic Heights go above and beyond and will do everything in their power to help students. My children love their teachers and admire them greatly, and I have a great deal of respect for the way they work with my kids. I love the opportunities that are provided for me to be involved in the school and am always greeted warmly and made to feel incredibly welcome. I'm so thankful for the staff at SHE and the education my children are getting there!

Not enough accountability for teachers. A teacher was not telling the truth and no method of discounting the veracity. Administration and teacher are marching too much in lock step.

School lacks flexibility and is arbitrary in policies. Math is considered secondary.

We love Scenic Heights. We have children in 4th,2nd and kindergarten. Our kindergartener is in the Chinese Immersion program and it is amazing how easily the children are picking up Chinese. The best part is that this program does not cost anything extra and there is no lottery program to enter it. Our 2nd and 4th greaters are doing well and are very happy at their school. The teachers really care about the students ans the whole staff is exceptionally friendly.

I absolutely love the Minnetonka school district! When my daughter was going into kindergarten I found out there was all day kindergarten at Scenic Heights Elementary. Her experiences and success has been wonderful. I went through a very hard and nasty divorce. The school and all the teachers were so supportive and the social worker at school was exceptional beyond any expectaions one could have. As a result of the support at school I firmly believe much of what could have been issues with my daughter did not arise. I would highly recommend this district to anyone who is moving into the district. Good luck!
