For the second consecutive year, Synergy and Leadership Exchange has named Maple Grove Senior High an Honorable Mention Minnesota School of Character, recognizing the school’s exceptional character development program, "The Crimson Way."

For the past six years, Maple Grove Senior High has involved stakeholders in an intentional process to create, develop and implement "The Crimson Way," which is based upon the school district's six core values. Maple Grove Senior High serves as a model to other schools in the state and nation, with staff and students helping other educators transform their school cultures, improve academics, and promote positive student behavior.

Each year, Synergy honors schools for outstanding character development through the Character Education Partnership’s State and National Schools of Character program.
