Minnewaska Area Schools


Tucked into the rolling hills of Pope County, Lake Minnewaska is truly one of the jewels of West Central Minnesota. Surrounding the lake are historic communities, each with a rich heritage, unique identity, and hardworking residents. The children of the area are entrusted to the caring staff and administrators of the Minnewaska Area School District serving Farwell, Glenwood, Long Beach, Lowry, Sedan, Starbuck, Villard, and Westport.

OUR MISSION:
“The mission of Minnewaska Area School District is to always place students first in order to produce individuals with the confidence and ability to pursue and achieve their highest aspirations...in a safe, supportive environment maximizing their resources of an unified community.”
