I have attended New Glarus Schools since Kindergarten. I would recommend this school district to anyone and everyone! I had a great experience and was able to participate in sports, clubs and organizations, volunteer programs for the school and community, and many advanced academic courses. The teachers are always available and willing to help students. I have always felt safe and free to express my opinions. It has definitely prepared me to be college and career ready!
New Glarus is a small school, that comes with its advantages and disadvantages. At New Glarus, you can get more individual attention if you are a student seeking academic assistance. If you find yourself excelling there isn't much room for you to excel. They do have a variety of extra courses to take but not as much as a bigger school would offer. It is a nice school surrounded by nice staff and students.
New Glarus High School consists of a stereotypical small town atmosphere where the Principal is the Football Coach, last name "legacy"'s receive bloated attention, and practically the entire town shows up for a sports event. Actually scratch that, not any sports event, only the boys football or basketball games. Anything else that actually took time and effort to achieve high honors won't get mentioned. The education system, I admit, exceeds some other school districts, except for any of the arts departments.
