Welcome to Minneapolis Public Schools!

Student Placement Services manages the District's outreach and enrollment by serving, and optimally placing, approximately 36,000 MPS students in one of our seventy-five (75) schools with or without District-provided transportation. Minneapolis Public Schools promises an inspirational education experience in a safe, welcoming environment for all diverse learners to acquire the tools and skills necessary to confidently engage in the global community. MPS works hard to create and deliver an exceptional educational experience for all students and families who walk through our doors. We invite you to discover what makes MPS extraordinary, and we hope that the MPS mission - we exist to ensure that all students learn – will resonate with you as you explore our schools.

Our Offices

North Minneapolis: Student Placement Services is located on the first floor of the District Headquarters- the Davis Center in north Minneapolis. We primarily serve English-speaking families throughout Minneapolis, as well as Hmong-speaking families. At this location, families are served on a walk-in basis. An appointment is not necessary unless your child will require an English proficiency assessment.

South Minneapolis: The New Families Center is located in south Minneapolis within the Wilder complex. We primarily serve families who have a home language other than English but all families are welcome. We have bilingual staff that speaks Spanish, Somali, as well as other languages. At this location, families are required to schedule an appointment for an English proficiency assessment if needed.
