  • Welcome to Cornelia

    Cornelia Elementary School is one of six elementary schools within the nationally recognized Edina Public Schools district. Cornelia provides a personalized learning experience for students K-5 with opportunities including a maker space, school garden, service projects, and student leadership. Recent building enhancements have created flexible learning spaces where we offer students creative and innovative opportunities to learn core standards, as well as to grow personally in understanding themselves and how they learn best. We work to engage all students in the process of learning by having high expectations for all and providing support that helps students achieve at their highest potential.
