Robbinsdale Area Schools

About Us

Welcome to Robbinsdale Area Schools (Rdale), where our students, staff and families belong to a vibrant community of schools and programs. We serve about 12,000 students in seven cities including: Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Golden Valley, New Hope, Plymouth and Robbinsdale.

In Rdale, we help students discover their passions and believe they can become the best version of themselves.  

Meeting student needs
Rdale has something for everyone. From a focus on math and engineering, fine arts, or the flexibility of an online school, we encourage our learners through a variety of programming.

We know that meeting student needs doesn’t begin in our classrooms. Through community partnerships, our Full Service Community Schools help connect our families with on-site resources including food pantries, dental clinics, clothing drives, mental health resources and more.
