Minnewaska Area High School is a public school for grades 9–12 located in Glenwood, Minnesota. The school mascot is the Lakers. Minnewaska is a member of the West Central Conference.
The Minnewaska Area School District #2149 was consolidated in 1993 from three Pope County districts: Glenwood/Lowry, Starbuck, and Villard. Consolidation came after several years of cooperation that resulted in the building of the Minnewaska Area High School in 1991 that now serves about ¾ of the county. The Minnewaska Area High School was constructed at a cost of $16,500,000, funded partially with a $6,000,000 grant from the State of Minnesota.[1]
