Get to know us
Andersen United Middle School lays a strong foundation for the future
Located in the heart of vibrant South Central Minneapolis’s Phillips neighborhood, Andersen United Community Middle School will serve as home to a comprehensive middle school and the Dual Language Middle School program. Students at Andersen Community will help shape the way the school reflects, exemplifies and honors the culture and fabric of its community. Students in Andersen’s Dual Language program will continue their journey to proficiency in both Spanish and English with instruction in both languages. Andersen will support student growth by creating welcoming classrooms rich with high expectations. An Andersen education propels students forward to find success in high school and beyond. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) candidiate school, Andersen will begin the process in SY 2021-22 to become an authorized MYP school.  This process takes an average of 5 years.  During this time, MYP practices will be implemented slowly and authentically to provide students with exposure to an MYP education.
