The Minnesota Japanese School (MNJS; ミネソタ日本語補習授業校 Minnesota Nihongo Hoshū Jugyō Kō) is a supplementary Japanese school for the children of Japanese citizens residing in Minnesota. The school was founded in 1978 and offers classes from pre-k to high school. Classes are held on Saturdays on the campus of Hope Presbyterian Church, located in Richfield, Minnesota, just south of Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Japanese School is recognized by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as teaching a curriculum equivalent to that of schools in Japan for children of similar age.

The school previously held its classes at Normandale Community College in Bloomington.[1]
