About

MPS Online School serving K-12 students

MPS Online School is a full-time* option for all MPS K-12 students, as well as students across Minnesota!

MPS Online School provides supportive, high-quality classes anywhere, anytime for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

MPS Online School is like any other school with a community of students, teachers and staff dedicated to the academic and social-emotional needs of students.

Depending on the grade level, classes are in real time with teachers and/or guided, independent study. 

Students and families can easily connect with teachers through online office hours to ask questions and discuss academic progress.     

*Both full and part-time options available for 9-12 students. Part-time registration for grades 9-12 opens on Aug. 23 here.

Enroll now for the new school year 2021-22 for kindergarten to 12 grade!

PLEASE NOTE: Students who choose MPS Online School as their distance learning option due to COVID-19 should know that students lose their seats in their original community or magnet school. However, students have the option to re-enroll in your original school and your student may transfer at the end of the academic quarter or semester. (As part of their class options, high school students may take online classes through MPS Online School on a part-time basis while still retaining their seat at their community high school.)
