Mukwonago School District Reviews
Rating 3.89 out of 5 45 reviews
I feel like barely anyone cared to help us further our academics. The school district spends nearly all of their budget on sports and cares so little about academics and helping the students succeed.
I have some really good teachers who genuinely care and teach me valuable lessons that I enjoy. However, a large portion of the students are toxic, start rumors, and constantly bully and harass me. I feel I don´t fit in with anyone.
Mukwonago is an amazing district that I grew up in and now my children attend. There are amazing teachers, schools, and community support. The district is very financially responsible, and makes sure that they do the best for students.
Lots of different opportunities for learning. They have a class for everything! Some of the teachers can be strict though, some leaving you to learn straight from the book, but otherwise the high school and other schools are a great learning field.
Great School District in terms of sports and performing arts. Good teachers and safety precautions. The amount of opportunities given throughout the district is wonderful, giving every student the full potential.
Teachers are very helpful and many push you to follow your dreams. The school has a lot of different classes, giving the students many options.
Although the education system at Mukwonago High School is better than a lot of others, the district itself still has many flaws. For example, the grading system is on a much more difficult scale, (not the 10% scale) and it's AP classes are not weighted. Therefore, if two students both have a 3.9 GPA, and student A is taking 3 AP classes, but student B isn't taking any, they both still get the same recognition for the GPA, even though most likely student A did more work for it. This is frustrating for many reasons.
Outstanding teachers and students! I am currently a junior at Mukwonago High School and I have had a great academic experience.
I think a bit more freedom and applicable classes would be nice but otherwise the teachers are great.
The Mukwonago Area School District offers an abundant amount of courses. Because of this, students are able to specifically take classes that they are interested in and that could benefit them in the future. There are also over 10 AP classes offered at Mukwonago High School, allowing many kids to earn college credit while still in high school. The Mukwonago Area School District gets all of its students ready for their upcoming years in college.
I graduated my grade school with only eight kids. Going to Mukwonago and having at least five hundred kids in my class was a big change. I was scared that it was going to be very hard and scary, but Mukwonago made it so easy to adapt to it.
School District has grown rapidly. The high school has been updated to accommodate, but the Middle School is bursting at the seams. Many classes at the Middle School and Elementary Schools are at the levels to mandate additional staffing, but school board rules have been misinterpreted in an effort to not staff appropriately. Kids with above and below average grades are being assisted, but those in the middle are not being challenged. All buildings have been updated for safety.
All schools, staff, and after school activities are an asset to the community! Code Ninjas, IT Academy, CyberPatriots, Hackathon and Robotics teach amazing things to students!
Overall, I think they do a good job and I've had a positive experience here. I wish they wouldn't have been under construction for so long. The school wasn't finished until my senior year so I spent most of my high school years with all the construction. Now that it's done, it's awesome although it would have been nice to have a field house for wrestling. The kids could have been a little more inclusive. No one is mean but they aren't always welcoming either. I'm not sure how ready I am for college but hopefully I will be. I think the English courses could be better.
I think the academics are amazing, but the way the school treats its students is another thing. In elementary school, teachers and administration did a poor job at handling children with ADHD. In middle school and high school, the district claimed to be so against bullying, yet did little to intervene.
Great teachers but horrible administrators. They care more about how the school looks and gets things done rather than the actual education.
I love attending want to go high school for the most part. The majority of the teachers are very hard-working kind and understanding people, They will work their absolute hardest to make sure no student fails. The overall learning environment is great. The school takes into account everyone is learning abilities and disabilities. When going to school I always feel safe, there is never a doubt in my mind.
