Interdistrict Downtown School (IDDS)
10 S. Tenth St.
Minneapolis, MN 55403
The Mission: "To prepare students to excel in the 21st century by enabling them to achieve high academic, technological and social goals through quality intercultural education."
The Interdistrict Downtown School opened in 1998 as a result of a successful anti-segregation lawsuit of the NAACP against Hennepin County. A project of the West Metro Education Program, the school draws children from ten school districts and strives for ethnic and economic diversity among its students. Teachers are reaching students with innovative approaches to learning; hands-on and technology-based learning is encouraged. With 500 students from kindergarten to twelfth grade, and a unique site in downtown Minneapolis, the school is building a sense of community both within and outside of the classroom.
