Hi,

We are moving to Minnesota from North Carolina in the month of April. My husband's work is in downtown Minneapolis. I have a son who goes to first grade now. I would like to know apartments in Minnesota with more Indian communities. Also I would like to know good public schools in the area. Kindly help me on this.
Thanks

The suburbs with the largest numbers of Indians would be Eden Prairie, Hopkins, Edina, Plymouth, and Burnsville. The public schools in the Eden Prairie, Edina, and Hopkins school districts are highly regarded. I think in Burnsville it depends on which school district you are in.

Note that in Minnesota, cities and school districts may have the same name but different boundaries.

Plymouth is split between several different districts, of which Wayzata is most highly regarded.

You might also contact this organization for information. http://www.iamn.org/en/

I hope this is helpful.

You might get better results posting in the MSP forum. I have several Indian friends who's comments would back up what Glenfield said, that places like Plymouth and Eden Prairie have large Indian populations; Woodbury and Eagan also get mentioned to me a lot as well.

It is true that in Burnsville you don't want to be in D191 schools, but rather the Savage/Prior Lake schools (not sure what district that is).

I don't know of specific apartments with large Indian communities, although this question seems to come up every now and then on these forums. It may actually help you to google where the Indian grocery stores are, as they tend to locate in areas with larger Indian populations. A good portion of the suburban schools are considered good schools nationally, it's actually harder to find a bad school.

The below are all known to be some of the best schools, however it really does a disservice to MN schools because there are a lot more good schools that I'm not including.
Moundsview
Eagan/Apple Valley/Rosemount
Edina
Eden Prairie
Stillwater
Woodbury
Plymouth (Wayzata)

Now that is a really great idea!

Eagan Town Centre has two Indian restaurants close together: Persis Biryani and Bay Leaf. That's where I like to hang out when I get up that way.
