La Crosse School District Reviews

I've been in the La Crosse school district my whole life. They have taught me almost everything I know, and they're preparing me for college. There is a real emphasis on making friends, developing a strong leadership personality, and being productive. In the La Crosse school district there is a strong no-bullying policy. Throughout elementary and middle school there were multiple programs like D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) the only change I can suggest for them is to continue it into high school in a way that will relate to high schoolers. I would definitely recommend La Crosse school district to people who want a district that will ask for their opinion, give their child (children) exceptional education, and work with the parents to meet needs and goals.

I had a good, positive, and successful time as a student of the La Crosse School District. At each level of education there were dedicated teachers who enjoyed helping students. This positive atmosphere resulted in strong academic performance and test scores. Along with high standing academics, the La Crosse School District also supports a wide-array of extracurricular activities and sports. These activities allow students to pursue their passions and meet new friends with similar interests. Each school is very diverse, inclusive, and open minded. Students come from all ends of the spectrum and our supported as necessary. I think it is also to note that the LGBTQ community should feel safe and welcome within each school.
An amazing school district, especially given the size of La Crosse! All the teachers are very passionate about teaching and devoted to helping their students succeed.
