Minneapolis Washburn High School
When Minneapolis students had back to class a week from Monday, the district will experience something it hasn’t in more than a decade – a spike in the number of high school students attending Minneapolis Public Schools. For the first time since 2001, enrollment district-wide will be more than 34,000 students – nearly more than 400 than last year.
Just weeks before the start of the school year, there is another shake-up in leadership at Minneapolis Wasburn High School. Patrick Exner has been dismissed as principal after less than a week on the job after being accused of altering test scores for three students at his previous school, Ubah Medical Academy.
