When Schools Are Strong, Communities Thrive

Our schools are your schoolsThe Inver Grove Heights community - including businesses, real estate values, neighborhoods, etc. - is thriving in large part because of its strong schools. Yet competition from neighboring districts is real and currently our schools are at the lowest operating referendum revenue of all our neighboring districts. This means our per student funding is a little more than half of some of the schools in our surrounding area. We want our students to have increased career and college opportunities available to them. In order to provide these choices, it’s important for our schools to stay competitive. Our schools are your schools – their future is in your hands.

Inver Grove Schools are a good return on your investment.
