A proud tradition
Community leaders from small towns and rural areas recognized the need
to provide students with the best education possible back in 1952 when
they voted overwhelmingly in favor of consolidating into Anoka-Hennepin
School District. Prior to that time, students throughout the area were
educated in many small schools scattered throughout a largely rural
area. Most went into the city of Anoka for high school.
As population growth spurred development of the suburban communities of
Anoka-Hennepin, the school district grew rapidly in size, from
approximately 4,000 students at the time the district formed, to more
than 40,000 today.
Throughout years of tremendous growth in the district, citizens have
supported young people by approving bond issues year after year to
build schools. That support continues today in the form of
voter-approved levies to pay a portion the local share of operating
schools. Click here

Community support is also evident in the thousands of citizens who
support students by attending school events and volunteering in the
district's schools. More than 9,000 volunteers annual contribute nearly
170,000 hours of time in Anoka-Hennepin Schools.
