Information for Prospective Parents

Interested in having your child attend Marcy Open School?

Why not take a tour?

Our school day starts at 8:40 a.m. Students are dismissed at 3:10 p.m.

During the tour you can ask questions, meet teachers and staff, visit the library/media center, theater, gym, multipurpose room, and classrooms. Marcy Open School is located right next to Holmes Park, which has a playground and an open play field where Marcy kids spend recess and have gym, weather permitting. Should your child need school-age child care, be sure to visit Minneapolis Kids' onsite location.

To schedule a tour, please contact Sidney Orchard, Family and Community Liaison, by calling (612) 668-1023 or by email at

School choice information will be available from the district in early January. The choice cards will be available at any Minneapolis School following the School Information Fair and should be mailed directly to the district’s Student Placement Center. For more information, see Minneapolis Public Schools' School Choice Center.
