Hiawatha Academies, a growing charter school, will open a new middle school August 13, 2012, at 3800 Pleasant Avenue South in Minneapolis. The new school will be called Adelante College Prep and will start with just fifth- and sixth-graders this year. Plans call for later expanding it to grades five through eight. It is estimated that the new school will have 125 students in its first year.
Hiawatha Academies began in 2007 in a few classrooms in the basement of St. Joan of Arc Church in south Minneapolis. As the charter school grew, it expanded the former Morris Park Elementary School building, a former Minneapolis Public Schools property, in 2009.
