My daughter likes going to school and likes her teacher, which is a definite plus this year considering everything going on. I grew up in the district, and I don't think our public schools get enough credit. They're offering a lot of different variety than they did when I was in school, and it's kind of nice to get that as an option.

It's a district that produces. It produces for us and everyone. They offer programs where people can excel, and then they help.

The Robbinsdale Area Schools Enrollment Center supports families who decide homeschooling is the best choice for their students. Homeschools must comply with state requirements in accordance with the Minnesota Compulsory Instruction Law.

New homeschoolers can enroll at any time during the school year. In order to enroll please submit the Initial Registration Form for Unaccredited Schools. If you plan to continue homeschooling subsequent years, a Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction must be submitted to our office indicating your intent to continue homeschooling and if any changes have been made (e.g., change in test selection, updated immunization records, change of address).
