The Belle Plaine Public Schools; a caring learning community of over 1600 students, faculty, staff, and administrators; are located on the Southwest edge of the Twin Cities metro area.


The district has several distinct geographic advantages -- being located just 35 miles south of Minneapolis on US Highway 169, being nestled within the picturesque Minnesota River Valley, and being surrounded by large swaths of beautiful farmland.


These geographic advantages have translated into tremendous growth. Our schools have been growing by approximately 4% per year for much of the last decade.


Our greatest asset is our dedicated, professional staff. Our faculty realize that the world we are educating students for is far different than the world we have come from.  


Our staff do an excellent job creating rigorous, relevant learning opportunities that offer on-demand experiences available to students anytime, anywhere.  These experiences are flexible, adaptable and individualize, differentiate, and personalize the learning experience for all students, preparing them to be lifelong learners that will prepare them to be successful in a global society.


Whether you are new to our community or are a lifelong Belle Plaine resident, we encourage you to find out more about our school district. Feel free to contact us at (952) 873-2400 with any questions.
