Rogers is a vibrant, growing suburban community in Hennepin County and the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area. In its early days, Rogers benefitted from the expansion of the railroad to spur growth and industry, and draw people to the rich, productive land and the beauty of the surrounding natural landscapes – thereby forming the foundation of the community.
Today, transportation remains an important factor drawing people and industry to Rogers. The community enjoys the benefits of its unique location at the intersection of two regional roadway systems – Interstate 94 (I-94) and Trunk Highway 101 (TH 101) – that connect the community to employment centers and amenities of the Twin Cities and the recreational destinations of northern Minnesota.
Situated as a key gateway between the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota, Rogers delivers the best combination of urban services and amenities with rich rural landscapes and wide open natural areas, and an abundance of parks and recreational destinations. This has made Rogers a hub for business and distribution, and an attractive community for raising families, as is evidenced by the community being named, in 2013, as the “Best Place to Raise Kids in Minnesota” by Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
Rogers is home to four schools in Independent School District 728, the eighth-largest district in Minnesota. Those four schools include: Hassan Elementary School, Rogers Elementary STEM Magnet School, Rogers Middle School and Rogers High School. Rogers High School consistently ranks among the state’s highest in academic achievement, as well as its state-award winning music, athletic, drama and academic-based club programs, and nationally recognized Culinary Arts and DECA programs.
