Why Wheatland?

Logo

In the last 10 years Wheatland has become a destination district and has increased enrollment by nearly 200 students. Students currently come to the District from over 400 sq. miles.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 expanded our STEAM programming each year.

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. Our students consistently place well in the regional STEAM competitions, at MSOE, and other universities. 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.

Wheatland is also recognized in the state for our student outcomes. More than 50% of 8th grade students have high school math credit before ever leaving our campus. Each year Wheatland exceeds expectations on the Wisconsin School Report Card. After school students can take part in many different opportunities from no cut athletics, to a myriad of exciting clubs and contests supported by the school. No matter the student's interest, Wheatland has an activity in which they can thrive.

The true measure of a school is how the students and parents feel about it. 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.
