Waconia - School Information

WSD Engages students by providing broad & challenging learning experiences

Waconia Public Schools (Independent School District 110) provide an excellent education to students who reside in Waconia, Minnetrista, St. Bonifacius, and New Germany. Waconia Public Schools are located in Carver and Hennepin Counties, about 20 miles west of the Highway 494 loop around Minneapolis.

Waconia Community Education is also a part of the Waconia Public Schools, and includes Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE), Kids Company (school aged day care), and Rainbow Preschool, along with hundreds of opportunities for recreation and education for all district residents.

3700 students are learning in Waconia’s schools every day, with class sizes lower than many metro area school districts. With it smaller size, Waconia Public Schools try to focus on students as individuals and meet their academic, emotional, artistic, health, and athletic needs.

Students receive education in two elementary schools (Kindergarten through grade 4), one middle school (grades 5 – 8) and one high school (grades 9 – 12). In addition, the Waconia Enrichment Center houses programs including the Waconia Transition Program, ECFE classes, Rainbow Preschool, and Early Childhood Special Education classes.
