In 2011, Hiawatha Academies opened our second school on the corner of West 38th Street and Pleasant Avenue South in the Kingfield neighborhood of Minneapolis, serving grades 5-8. In its first year, 81% of Hiawatha College Prep’s fifth-grade scholars scored Proficient or Advanced in reading, another 84% scored Proficient or Advanced in math, far outperforming neighboring schools, the local school district, and statewide scores.
