About 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.

Welcoming Environment

At Cornelia, we celebrate our school community’s diversity with special events and a welcoming environment. Cornelia is home to the district’s site-based program serving students with developmental cognitive disabilities. We are equipped with specialized learning spaces and an accessible playground. We have implemented the Social & Emotional Learning curriculum from Second Step.
