Eden Prairie Schools: 100 Years of Inspiring Each
Celebrate our past, help build our future!
Our district's transformation over the last century would not have been possible without a community that consistently invested their time, resources, and energy into our students and families. This Give to the Max Day, you can help to continue that legacy of excellence! Our goal is to raise at least $19,240 in honor of our 100th anniversary!

Eden Prairie Schools History
Since Eden Prairie’s earliest days, its residents have believed deeply in the power of community and the importance of education. In fact, the town board of Eden Prairie held its first meeting in a log schoolhouse on May 11, 1858 — the same day Minnesota became a state. That log schoolhouse would remain a hub of community for decades to come.
The one-room schoolhouse came and went, and the city joined others as part of a joint school district. In March of 1924, the Eden Prairie Consolidated School welcomed students back to their hometown in the brick building at the top of School Road (now known as the Administrative Services Center).
Today’s students learn and grow in a districtwide preschool; six in-person elementary schools, including a Spanish immersion option; a newly-renovated and expanded middle school; and, a 750,000 square-foot high school equipped with classrooms and co-curricular spaces that the earliest Eagles could have hardly imagined. Students ages 18-22 with additional learning needs can continue their learning after graduation in the TASSEL Transition Program, and more than 500 students from across Minnesota have joined the Eden Prairie Schools community by choosing EP Online as their educational home.
100 Year History of Inspiring Students and Families
After the building that is now the Administrative Services Center was created in 1924, there was still lots of building to be done to create the Eden Prairie Schools we know today! The city’s school communities are incredible places for students to learn and grow. Here’s when they were built.
Celebrating in Community
