Eden Prairie Schools are located in Eden Prairie, MN, an edge city 12 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis in Hennepin County, and the 12th-largest city in the State of Minnesota. Eden Prairie had a population of 60,797 at the 2010 census, which made it the 7th-largest suburb in the Twin Cities and the 12th-largest city in Minnesota.

Comprising many large lakes and ponds, the city has more than 170 miles of multi-use trails, 2,250 acres of parks, and 1,300 acres of open space. A bedroom suburb in the 1960s, the city is now home to more than 2,200 businesses and the headquarters of Digital River, SuperValu, C.H. Robinson Worldwide, MTS Systems Corporation, and the Minnesota Vikings. Regionally known for Eden Prairie Center, it is also the hub for SouthWest Transit, providing public transportation to three adjacent suburbs. Eden Prairie has been named one of Money Magazine's "Best Places to Live" in America since 2006; the city earned first place in the 2010 survey.

Eden Prairie has an outstanding school district that provides a rigorous, yet nurturing academic environment for children to learn and develop in their own unique ways. Behind the exterior of our brick buildings, you will find a school community - teachers, students, administrators, board members and volunteers - who have a great deal of pride in their schools. The cornerstone of our success is working together with community partners at our side, to ensure each student is inspired to reach their full potential.

This district has enjoyed a long tradition of excellence. Our digital program i-Learn@EP is one of the most extensive in the state to transform classroom teaching and personalize student learning. Our part- and full-day gifted programs - KEY and Mosaic - are consistently recognized for their quality and support. We maintain the largest array of athletic, academic and music options of any district in the state. We also send more of our graduates to college than any other school in the state (with graduating class sizes above 50) and those students graduate at higher percentages within six years than all other schools in our conference.

Guiding all our work is our Strategic Plan. The plan was the result of many hours of work by hundreds of people in our community who identified the vision for our schools through the year 2018. Eden Prairie is a school district with 1,400 employees serving approximately 9,000 students. The district is recognized for its quality initiatives and its leadership in educational programming.

We hope you will consider becoming part of the outstanding reputation that includes first class technology, unlimited creativity and innovation, and outstanding teacher support at Eden Prairie Schools.
