Pewaukee School District Reviews
While the academics of PHS are highly praised and I enjoy many classes, some teachers don't really know how to teach. There is also no diversity in PHS, it's filled with straight white Christian kids except for a good handful.
Pewaukee School Distrifct is amazing! They have the most welcoming and hardworking staff and always try to personalize the learning experience for each student. They have so many opportunities for the kids including pen pals, sports, clubs and the fine arts as well as attending competitions and conferences for the school. I cannot say enough about the Pewaukee School District as they go above and beyond to open the door to each child's future.
Pewaukee was a very good school academically, but the diversity was very limited as well as the sports were more political about who you knew or who you were related to rather than based off of actual skill level.
I believe Pewaukee High School is a great learning environment that provides students with excellent opportunities for success. There are many ways teachers adapt to teach students the content in class. The ability to adapt to each child is important to me because not every kid learns the same way as others do. I do think the school as a whole can do more things like pep rally or something to get the whole school together to make everyone feel welcome. Otherwise I believe I have grown as a student and hope to grown and learn even more in my final year of high school.
All teachers are accommodating to students needs and helping them achieve success. There is no such thing as the sky is the limit. Students and teachers go beyond what is expected of themselves to provide each other with the most eye-opening opportunities. The additional programs at Pewaukee schools give students a jump ahead for preparing in the real world, and helps them figure out a plan much earlier in their school career.
Overall, Pewaukee School District is a good school, as it encourages students to excel in academics and grow as individuals.
Pewaukee School District has great involvement within all ages of students. Athletes and students in high school have plenty of opportunities to go back and explore the younger schools while tutoring or mentoring younger students. Many high school students are very successful in school and post graduation!
It is a great community of people who are dedicated to learning and teaching. People help each other out and proceed to lead people further into college readiness and future planning as well as exploring interests and teaching social skills
Pewaukee is a capable school with the technology to prepare students for the real world. Unfortunately the school doesn't push students to their highest level. Grading harder and stressing the importance of quality work would increase the experience and effectiveness. -Tyler H
I transferred to Pewaukee High my sophomore year of high school. I was very nervous to be going to school with a bunch of kids I didn't know. Pewaukee is very small, so all of the kids had been going to the same school since Kindergarten so at first it was very hard to find my own group. It took maybe a week before I truly felt welcome. The teachers were very nice and understanding, and I spent a lot of time with them whenever I needed to get my grades up. The students were very welcoming as well. Inviting me to sit with them at lunch and volunteering to be my partner during class activities. If you want to start fresh in a new town, I would definitely recommend the Pewaukee school system for your children. They will definitely feel welcome and at home in no time!
Pewaukee school district is highly competitive which is extremely discouraging for students and often has negative impacts. There is an expectation of perfection and the level of academic an athletic performance.
Pewaukee High School has a lot of opportunities for taking AP classes. There are a lot of higher levels classes available. However, Pewaukee increases the chances of error through the blended class they offer, and the lenience of deadlines at the middle school.
I came to Pewaukee when I was 12 year old, just before the 7th grade. Pewaukee is very technology proficient and offers rigorous classes that get you ready for college. They also offer a wide array of classes, and allow you to take a college course at the WCTC close by. The teachers have helped me in many ways, including finding a college that I would like to go to, finding scholarships, and learning more about myself.
I love the sense of community at the Pewaukee School District. Most of the people I will be graduating with in the spring are the same people that I started kindergarten. The staff does a great job providing a unique experience and puts lots of rules in place to prepare students for college. I have also noticed in my travels to other high schools that we have a very nice campus compared to some other schools in the area. It is easy to take this for granted but I will always be grateful I have such a great learning environment.
From kindergarten on, I have grown up with the same class of 200 people. Graduating from elementary school, to middle school, then eventually to high school, Pewaukee has been an exceptionally comfortable, respectable town to grow up in. Our class is incredibly close, which makes the learning and extra curricular activities worth while. The staff, students, and community made high school a memory I will always love to look back on.
