The Westonka Community
Research shows that a school system needs a strong supportive community to be successful. Westonka Public Schools has a long-standing tradition of providing a quality education because we are part of an outstanding community. Community involvement is a substantial part of our culture, whether it is through joining a community advisory committee, participating in community education courses and services or attending our athletic and performing arts events. We welcome you to become involved and take part in our educational success.
An Ideal Place to Raise a Family
The Westonka community preserves the tranquil ambiance of a small town—quiet, charming, and safe—within close proximity of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
With its 17 miles of shoreline, the Westonka area has long been a summer vacation spot, and its resort atmosphere remains strong. In these small towns, people generally know one another by name and still hold parades through downtown. Yet, within a 30-minute drive, families have access to a full array of urban amenities in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
