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.
