About

In Hopkins, inclusivity leads to understanding, empathy, and respect. All families are celebrated, and we empower all voices to be heard. Feeling welcome, accepted, and affirmed, our scholars develop a sense of belonging in an authentic school community where they are challenged to succeed and excel. Here, everyone belongs.

About Hopkins Public Schools

Hopkins Public Schools is a nationally recognized public school district serving approximately 6,800 students. The district includes six elementary schools (gr. K-6), two junior high schools (gr. 7-9), and one high school (gr. 10-12). 

In Hopkins you’ll find a rigorous academic curriculum and an inclusive school community that enables every student to learn through trial and error, instilling confidence and creating opportunities for innovative thinking to emerge. When your child graduates, they will have key traits that we believe will set them apart from their peers and set them up for 21st century success. Hopkins Public Schools serves the City of Hopkins, as well as portions of Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Edina, Plymouth, St. Louis Park, and Golden Valley.

Mission

Hopkins Public Schools serves the community by welcoming all learners, honoring culture, and inspiring remarkable growth and achievement. Our district is a special place and unique in many ways. We are academically focused, but also human-focused. There is no typical Hopkins student, and we value that diversity. We are a blend of faiths, cultures, and backgrounds forming a district of individuals with rich stories. You are welcome at Hopkins. You belong at Hopkins.

The Hopkins Promise

Hopkins promises an educational experience for students ages 0-21 that prepares them to succeed in our increasingly complex, rapidly changing world. Our students are recognized as global scholars — who work collaboratively, disrupt the status quo, and solve some of the world’s most complex problems. They are the best and brightest citizens of tomorrow. Together, we are creating a better world by inspiring each student to reach their full potential.
