The school districts that encompass the Lake Minnetonka area are some of the very best in the State of Minnesota. The include: Minnetonka Public Schools, Orono Public Schools, Westonka Public Schools, and Wayzata Public Schools.
Wayzata is the largest district, and serves the communities of Wayzata, Plymouth, Minnetonka, Hamel, Medicine Lake, and Maple Grove. The High School Campus feels more like a small university than a high school, with a huge main building, parking lot, athletic fields, and more just north of Highway 55 on Peony Lane. Three middle schools and 9 elementary schools make up the district which is second to none when it comes to education, opportunity, and diversity. Acadamic and athletic achievement are the norms.
