Mequon-Thiensville School District Reviews

My oldest requires special education and I was told by a district administrator that because she was not going to be an Ivy League student that we should be happy that she will receive life skills knowledge from the high school. Funding for special education was significantly cut a few years back and it is not hard to see how detrimental that funding cut was. Our second child has been bullied physically, emotionally, and verbally, with little to no assistance from educators and administrators alike. In fact, we were told that maybe our child should think about how to fit in rather than complain about being hit. Teachers simply say that they can’t see everything. We are discouraged by the elitist view by the administration to keep the wealthy families happy even when those children bully and terrorize other students.

My experience with the Mequon-Thiensville School District is a semi-pleasant one. Everything was hunky dory until seventh grade where I was put in a lower math class and I took a test telling me that I was not an abstract thinker and put me into a math class called "Foundations." This was a waste of time and way too easy. It wasn't until High School that I was mildly challenged in math. If I stayed on track and took the honors class in eighth grade I would be able to be challenged, but due to that year where I was put in that foundations class I couldn't ever get back to that level. Missing that one year set back my whole math career. It seems like the art department has little to no funding and that art teachers sometimes pay out of pocket to get things for the class. For painting class they cannot afford to give them paints. There is also not a lot of support from the superintendent for the arts program. There is only funding due to the High School’s principal.
Rigorous college preparation! Homestead High School offers a large variety of AP courses starting in the Freshman year! AP teachers are excellent.
