About This School

Higher Ground Academy is located in St. Paul, MN and is in Higher Ground Academy School District. It is a charter school that serves 662 students in grades K-12.

Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Higher Ground Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Higher Ground Academy Reviews

By a Parent on

Higher Ground Academy has a very strong and challenging program in chemistry class. The AP chemistry class is a good program where students are using modern technology, which is the same tools as that of universities and college. So the advantage is great for those students who are taking such a class.
