Hiawatha College Prep-Kingfield is part of Hiawatha Academies‘ network of high performing college-preparatory schools focused on closing the achievement gap in Minneapolis. Hiawatha Academies was founded by civic leaders, parents, educators and business people who want our scholars to receive an education that demands their best in behavior, attitude, and effort, and that challenges them to achieve to their highest potential.

Hiawatha College Prep-Kingfield is a middle school serving 310 scholars in grades 5-8. Our scholars frequently outperform students at neighboring schools, as well as district and state averages.

We offer a rigorous college preparatory curriculum as well as hands on learning and extracurriculars to support our scholars’ development. Our scholars have opportunities to learn through technology, engineering, and the arts in addition to more “traditional” classroom learning.
