Classroom Sneak Peek
Watch brief video clips of our online learning lessons developed by our teachers especially for Minnehaha students.
A lot of parents are concerned that their schools, or in some cases whole school districts, really disappeared when the COVID crisis came along. Kids aren't getting what they need in a lot of ways - for a lot of reasons. I think MA had laid enough groundwork in past years that it basically worked from Day 1. Our kids sometimes complain that their history teacher's video lectures are too energetic and in-depth . . . I love having that problem. We get to debrief it over dinner every night. We miss the school so much, but the learning and the relationships are still going strong.
