It's Always a Great Day to be a Saber!
Our Mission: Shakopee Schools, in partnership with our community, will educate lifelong learners to succeed in a diverse world.
The Shakopee district serves more than 8,000 students in Shakopee, Savage, Prior Lake, and the Jackson, Louisville, and Sand Creek Townships. Our district is located in one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Twin Cities.
We offer a myriad of programs and activities that give our students of all ages, backgrounds and interests the chance to learn, share, explore and expand their knowledge, talents, skills and abilities in academics, arts, athletics, community service, and so much more. We also offer a variety of high potential classes at all grades as well as programs at the high school that can earn students college credits.
The Shakopee School District is committed to providing the best opportunities for our students. We are dedicated to helping them excel and achieve their educational goals and teaching them to be good citizens of our community, our nation and our world.

Diversity & Opportunity
The Shakopee school district is proud to serve a very diverse population of students and families with more than 70 languages and dialects from around the world spoken in our schools. On average, our student population consists of approximately 60% Caucasian, 13% Asian, 14% Hispanic/Latino, 11% Black/African American and 2% American Indian. Relative to diversity, over the last two years, Shakopee Public Schools has been working with Equity Alliance MN to identify areas for equitable growth throughout our system. During a November 2020 board work session, the district took another positive step by passing a resolution to form a District Equity Leadership Team (DELT).
The purpose of DELT is to narrow gaps between the lowest and highest performing students, and eliminate the racial or cultural predictability and disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories including rates of graduation. By committing to this, this district is ensuring educational equity for all students. DELT will examine and make recommendations to address district policies, practices and procedures that may intentionally or unintentionally create discriminatory practices or outcomes for historically marginalized students.
DELT is comprised of staff, parents and community members, board members and city/county representatives.
