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 hard working 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 * 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.”
