Get to know us

Andersen United Middle School lays a strong foundation for the future

Located in the heart of the vibrant South Central Minneapolis Phillips neighborhood, Andersen United Middle School is home to a comprehensive middle school and the Dual Language Middle School program. Students at Andersen Middle School 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 supports student growth by creating welcoming classrooms rich with high expectations and focusing on the school’s four core values: belonging, inclusion, anti-racism and future-readiness. An Andersen education propels students forward to find success in high school and beyond by integrating our four core values of belonging, inclusion, anti-racism & future ready. 

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) candidate school, Andersen began 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.

Minnesota Report Card Data

The Minnesota Report Card is a tool to help inform families and communities about their schools so they can make important decisions and meaningfully engage with schools and educators. However, Minnesota Report Card data only provides a partial snapshot of what the experience may be like at any given school. MPS recommends connecting directly with school leaders and communities through school tours, open houses and other events to gain a fuller understanding of how our schools support students and families.
