New Berlin School District Reviews

The School District of New Berlin offers some of the best academics out of all of the public schools in the state. New Berlin Eisenhower High School and multiple of the middle schools are routinely ranked within the top schools within the state of Wisconsin. The high schools offer nearly every AP class on campus and a decently wide variety of other classes. The district definitely pushes students to climb high academically, offering programs such as taking 7th/8th grade math in 6th grade and summer school. At least at New Berlin Eisenhower, the student culture is very academically-focused. Most students are high-achievers and strive to do well in their classes. In contrast to a lot of other schools, doing well is "cool" and doing poorly is slightly frowned upon by peers. Almost all students take at least one AP class throughout their high school careers, with a considerable amount taking 5 or more.

The facilities at the schools are not great. Buildings are very old.

I really like the overall experience. The amount of classes was great and the teachers make it even better! The only thing that would be a negative is Eisenhower’s building. It’s not in the best of conditions and is kind of a drag to look at. Altogether, I feel very safe, happy, a part of a close community, as well prepared for my future.
New Berlin is the perfect community to be in as it entails an amazing mixture of great schools, friendly people, and a variety of events and places to go! One thing I would change about New Berlin is the involvement and action taken in New Berlin West Club leaders. With more dedicated and active leaders (teachers) leading these clubs, the same traits would be inherited by the students and more change for the school and community could happen. But growing up in New Berlin for most of my life, I have learned to participate in community service to connect with the people, families, and businesses around me, through having a major role in various clubs at New Berlin West such as National Honors Society, DECA, and SALU. Transitioning to West from Poplar Creek was also a major step as is in most kids lives. Entering middle school gave me more responsibility, and going into high school took lots of weight off my shoulders since our middle and high schools are combined.
