Mission to Inspire
At Eden Prairie Schools, we make it our mission to inspire each student so that they may reach their full potential. It's no secret that Eden Prairie Schools haas a well-established history of excellent academics, activities, and athletics. Our graduates go on to college the year after they graduate in higher percentages than any other school in the area. This network of outstanding teachers and learners - supported by a community that values education - is what makes this district a leader time and again.
EdenPrairie Schools serves over 8,000 students and is comprised of six elementary schools, a middle school high school, early childhood and community education programs, and transition programs for 18 to 21 olds
EPHS Band Program
The concert band experience is the focus of the Eden Prairie High School Band Program. Concert ensembles provide the foundation for everything we do, and they open the door to all other ensembles.
The Eden Prairie High School Bands have enjoyed a long tradition of recognized excellence. Over the past twenty years, the Wind Ensemble has been selected three times to perform as a featured band at the Music for All National Concert Band Festival, and the Percussion Ensembles have performed three times at the Bands of America National Percussion Festival. Both Groups were selected to perform at the 2010 MMEA Mid -Winter Clinic, and the EPHS Jazz I performed there in 2013. The Eagle Marching Band has been a Bands of America Super Regional Finalist and a consistent Minnesota Marching Band State Finalist with a State Championship in 2015. The Winter Drumline was a Winter Guard International Percussion Scholastic World Finalist in 2013 and 2014, as fellas Minnesota Percussion Association State Champions for the past six consecutive years. The Jazz Bands have traveled to play at national level events in New York, Chicago, Florida, and New Orleans.
We are pleased to have earned a reputation as a comprehensive, innovative, and exciting organization that provides its membership with quality musical and educational experiences.
