Don’t forget to contact your representatives to ask for permanent conveyance of Crosswinds to Perpich and Harambee to Roseville!

Both Harambee and Crosswinds are under new management. Harambee is being managed by the Roseville school district and Crosswinds is being managed by the Perpich Center for Arts Education. Both schools supply transportation for students from the 10 EMID member districts, and both schools also welcome open enrollment students. Our schools are year-round, integrated, magnet schools which focus on arts and the environment. Enroll in Crosswinds today!
