About WI Heights Schools
Wisconsin Heights is a school district of approximately 781 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. We are located 20 minutes west of Madison, Wisconsin’s state capitol, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Our facilities consist of two elementary buildings – one each in Black Earth and Mazomanie with grades EC-2 attending Black Earth and grades 3-5 attending Mazomanie. We also have a combined middle school/high school situated in the countryside between these two villages on Highway 14. The district encompasses approximately 100 square miles.
Our goal as a district is to help all children reach their potential every day, every year, in every class, in every activity. To achieve this goal, 129 dedicated staff members make a daily commitment to students, families, and our district. Of these 129, about 50% live in the district. As a result, they know our children not only as neighbors, but also through scout troops, youth sports, church groups, and other community activities. Whether teacher or secretary, cook or custodian, aide or assistant, these hometown connections help Wisconsin Heights educators meet the needs of our students.
A deeply-ingrained trademark of our schools is the personal attention that comes through small class sizes. A typical class size is 15-22, whether in kindergarten, sixth grade science, or junior year American Literature. Smaller classes are offered to help ensure student success in special areas such as advanced placement classes and upper level foreign languages. As a result of caring educators, committed students, and small class sizes, the district has a record of high levels of academic achievement as demonstrated by above-average standardized test scores.
We also recognize that a fundamental part of a student’s life is what happens outside the classroom. Toward that end, we offer a wide variety of extra-curricular programs for children of all ages. Here is just a partial list.
