Past Events

Minneapolis School Finder Fair

Finding the right school for your child is one of the first and most critical decisions families can make during their K-12 education journey. Great MN Schools has long sought to make the school choice process more informed through our Minneapolis School Finder guide. In 2023, we enhanced the process by hosting the first in person Minneapolis School Finder Fair.

At the event, district, charter, and independent schools from across the city came together to support families. Attendees have the chance to meet representatives from each school, ask questions, and get a feel for the school.
