The School District of Waukesha is fifteen miles west of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the rolling hills of Waukesha County. With over 12,000 pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students served in our 20 schools, we are the seventh largest school district in the State of Wisconsin.

Our schools include four comprehensive high schools, five middle schools, and 14 elementary schools. In addition to your attendance area or neighborhood schools we provide other learning opportunities including:

Charter Schools:

Magnet Schools:
Specialty Schools:

The Waukesha schools offer a full array of courses and activities from which students can learn and grow. The culture of our district is very school oriented and individual schools have autonomy in most operational, budget and staff areas.

Our district has a well-articulated curriculum, which is sequential in nature and based on Wisconsin State Standards and Benchmarks. We are proud to declare that one of our district high schools has won the State Academic Decathlon title nine times and was the National Academic Decathlon winner in 2002. Our district is well known for its music, art and other fine arts initiatives. Our marching bands have been state winners multiple years in the AAAA division, and our choirs and strings groups are sought to perform widely across the area, and our art students have won local, state and national awards and scholarships based on their work.

The Waukesha schools also perform well in competitive sports programs and have a full complement of opportunities for students.

Wisconsin's open enrollment legislation allows students from other school districts to attend our schools if parents submit open enrollment forms within designated time periods. For more information go to the State of Wisconsin's Open Enrollment program on the website for the Department of Public Instruction: living within the Waukesha School District boundaries and want to go to a school outside of your "neighborhood school" should inquire at the school you would like your child to attend to determine if space is available. Please visit other areas of our website for specific information you are seeking and to learn how our school district will serve your family.
