Although I have no other school to compare it to since I have been going to Pewaukee my entire life, I love how much the teachers care about students, how many activities and resources are provided to prepare students for college, and the whole district is currently under renovation so there are a lot of exciting new changes. The administration does a great job of trying to incorporate students' thoughts and ideas into the building, with a principal advisory board and meeting for students to attend, along with the positive culture that the advisers and teachers promote. Above all, the academics are amazing and prepare us well for the tests that we need to do well on to get into and then succeed in college.

Pewaukee High School is an excellent educational facility that promotes critical thinking and invaluable relationships between student-student, student-teacher, student-administrator, and more. Overall they deserve a 5-star rating because they genuinely care about "opening a door to every child's future", which is their mission statement. If they could endure any changes, they could potentially change their connections with the entire Pewaukee School District, since it is an open campus between Elementary through High School.
Pewaukee High School strives to give the best opportunities to students. The teachers and want students to succeed, and many teachers give projects that require students to work out in the community and work with real companies on projects that will help businesses. The real world experience prepares students for the future. This school is not afraid to try new learning techniques if they think it will help students have a better experience at school.
