Section School

History of Section School

For more than 125 years, a public school has sat prominently at this rural intersection, while educating Town of Mukwonago children.  In the 19th century, as today, area residents placed great emphasis on education, as did the federal government.  In fact, the financial returns generated through the original sale of federal lands in Section 16 of each township helped to subsidize the local public school system.  Because of its geographical proximity to Section 16, also known as the School Section, the small educational institution at this centrally located crossroads came to be known as Section School.  We perpetuate this historical tradition by constructing a large modern school, committed to the same goals of educational excellence as its 19th century Town of Mukwonago one-room predecessors.  Opened in September of 1982, Section Elementary School serves approximately 450 students in grades K-6.  The Mukwonago Area School District, serving the South Central portion of Waukesha County has about 5,000 students in 6 elementary units, one middle school building and one high school.
