There are no limits to our children’s gifts and capabilities.”
— Harvest Network of Schools


To instruct, empower, enable, and guide children to achieve superior academic, social, and moral development.


 For every child to be college and career ready. 


The Harvest Preparatory School (Harvest Prep), serving grades K-4 was established in 1992 from the dual visions of Dr. Ella Gates Mahmoud and Eric Mahmoud - following the success of SEED Daycare. 

Beginning as a private, nonprofit elementary school under the SEED Daycare, Inc., Harvest Prep became a public charter school in 1998. Since its establishment in 1992, we have grown from 24 students to over 400 students, with an annual waiting list.

In 2015, we moved our middle school scholars to a second campus, expanding the reach and impact of the Harvest Network of Schools throughout north Minneapolis.
