Welcome to Mukwonago!
Welcome to the Mukwonago Area School District,
The Mukwonago Area School District is located in the southwest corner of beautiful Waukesha County. Our 90 square miles encompass several different municipalities including the Village and Town of Mukwonago, the Villages of Big Bend and North Prairie and the towns of Vernon, Eagle, Ottawa, East Troy and Waukesha. We have approximately 30,000 people residing within our district and proudly serve 4,700 students in six elementary schools, one middle school, and one comprehensive high school.
We truly embody our district’s vision, “Students, Staff, and Community – Building Better Schools Together.” We are extremely fortunate to have hardworking students, dedicated staff members, and tremendous support from our parents and community. As you can see from the recent recognitions below, it’s a great recipe for success:
- The Mukwonago Area School District and our eight schools performed extremely well on the Department of Public Instruction’s annual report card ratings. The District’s score of 78.8 put us in the top 8% of the state’s 366 K – 12 districts. All individual schools earned scores in the top two rating tiers of “Exceeds Expectations” or “Significantly Exceeds Expectations.” Three schools (Clarendon Avenue Elementary, Prairie View Elementary, and Eagleville Elementary Charter) earned the top rating from DPI of “Significantly Exceeds Expectations.” Another two schools (Rolling Hills Elementary and Section Elementary) were within half a point from reaching this achievement.
- Mukwonago High School was recently named to the College Board’s 4th Annual AP Honor Roll. We are 1 of 477 districts in the entire nation to be recognized with this honor for increasing Advanced Placement Course options, increasing student participation, and maintaining a high level of student success over the past 3 years.
- Mukwonago High School and Park View Middle School have both been recognized as PBIS Schools of Merit due to the implementation of the “Mukwonago Way” and “Mustang Way” programs. We have created positive school climates where all students can be successful. You can count on our students to “Be on Time, Respectful, Responsible, and Safe!”
- Prairie View Elementary School recently joined Section Elementary as a part of the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program. This prestigious award goes to the top schools in the nation and recognizes them for overall academic excellence.
Thanks to the support of parents and the tireless work of our staff, our students consistently score well-above the state average on standardized tests. We have worked to integrate technology to transform learning for our 21st Century students. We are also expanding our Advanced Placement offerings while maintaining vocational options through our local technical schools. Although there are many challenges facing public education today, the Mukwonago Area School District has a remarkable history and a bright future. You will find that our schools are special places where our children can learn and grow to reach their potential.
