Glaucoma is a serious eye problem that needs to be monitored closely. If you or any of your family members have glaucoma, you need to have annual eye examinations to check the health of your eyes.

About our Schools:
The mission of the Jordan Public Schools is to Inspire a Caring Community to Ignite Learning, Innovation, and Success for All. We are located on Highway 169, just nine miles south of Shakopee and 30 minutes south of Minneapolis/St. Paul, in the beautiful Minnesota River Valley. The population of Jordan is approximately 6,500. Our unique student and family friendly single academic campus has excellent facilities and is located near many residential areas, including the historic downtown and a new public library. Our high school was built in 2003 and our award winning middle school was opened in 2015. Located adjacent to this building is the new 45,000 square foot Jordan Community Education and Recreation Center (CERC). Our elementary school, recipient of multiple Minnesota Department of Eduction distinctions, was built in 1978 and has a 2003 addition to include an early learning center. We are proud to be the only Parent Aware Four Star rated preschool program in Jordan.
Jordan students consistently score academically at the top of the Minnesota River Conference and our athletic and fine arts programs rival and exceed what can be found in much larger districts. This has allowed for Jordan students to stand out amongst the best in the state.
Educating 21st Century learners is important to us. We have a successful 1:1 technology program with students in grades 5–12 receiving Chromebook devices. In addition, our younger students explore technology on a daily basis with laptops and iPads for their use in the classroom and throughout the building.
In addition, a generous gift from the Ames Family has brought the district a Field Turf Field and completely updated Athletic Complex. This new space, along with several new ball fields, and ample green space are home to our thriving athletic programs. Our athletic facilities are among some of the best for districts our size and rank high among what can be found in the state.
The Jordan Public Schools serves approximately 1,800 students, grades preK–12, at three locations on our single academic campus.
