Why Wheatland?In the last 5 years, well over 100 students and families have chosen Wheatland as a destination district. The Wheatland School District provides a safe, welcoming learning environment for students, parents, and community members. We offer a well-balanced rigorous and relevant blend of academics, the arts, and exploratories. We were the first K-8 school district in Wisconsin to offer the Gateway to Technology program, a rigorous science, technology, and engineering program and have adopted the design process as a central focus for exploration.
We are proud of the progressive initiatives we have implemented to better prepare our students for the future. Students are provided individual laptops to create content and enhance their overall technology skills. Wheatland students interact with technology as part of their daily experience and have technology integration classes starting in 4K. Whether working with robots, 3D printers, smart boards, electrical circuitry or the many other individual devices Wheatland students have access to, it is clear that while learning is the focus, technology is the vehicle.
The true measure of a school is how the students and parents feel about it. In a recent survey 100% of open enrollment parents felt they had made the right choice. When you walk through the doors at Wheatland, the culture of going above and beyond to personalize instruction for each student is evident. We make sure all students know that there are many caring adults that will share in the learning journey with them.If you are considering Wheatland please call to schedule a tour with our principal, Mr. Drew Halbesma, or our District Administrator, Mr. Marty McGinley.
