We Want You Back

We Want You Back (WWYB) supports students who did not receive, or are at risk of not receiving their high school diploma. Our team regularly reaches out to students who left a Minneapolis Public School without graduating and invites them to come back. We also work closely with school support staff to make sure that returned students stay on track for graduation. 

Enrollment Outreach

We'll help you understand your best enrollment options based on your earned credits and age, guide you through the re-enrollment process and continue to provide you with support using the Check & Connect model. We also try our best to connect students with other support services within Minneapolis Public Schools and Hennepin County

Credit Recovery Program

Students ages 18-21 within 3 credits of graduating have the opportunity to complete their graduation requirements in an online credit recovery program. Assignments are self-paced to fit into your schedule. WWYB staff runs weekly labs to check in with students and provide support until graduation. 

Programs for Students 21+

Students over age 21 still have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma. The WWYB team can get you connected with programs for adults in the metro area. 

Accuplacer Testing

Students missing one or more the state required graduation tests can schedule an appointment with our staff to take the Accuplacer exam. Please call our office for more information. 

GED Age Waiver

Students under age 19 interested in taking the GED need to have an official age waiver. We'll first take a look through your credits to determine if the GED is the best option for you and then can connect you with GED resources in the area. 


If you or someone you know is considering returning to MPS to complete your high school diploma, please call We Want You Back and one of our staff can help you get started. (612) 668-1200.
