Rice Lake High School
#1 Best High Schools for STEM in Barron County
- Rice Lake Area School District, WI
- Rating 3.72 out of 5 53 reviews
Senior: At Rice Lake High School you feel welcome from the first day on campus. Going into senior year, I look back on my entire high school career and smile. Rice Lake High Staff members, approachable and positive, made it easy to feel included. My freshman year, I was nervous about being in a school with soon to be college students. The teachers recommended becoming a part of a club or sport to get to know the upperclassman outside of school; they were right. Participating in volleyball, softball, Future Business Leaders of America, and the National Honors Society made me recognize the older students as friends as oppose to classmates. As club teammates, we would work in small groups separated by specific goals. Coming together and overlooking our differences surpassed any other lesson I have learned in high school. Rice Lake High will always be home to me and I am proud to eventually become alumni.

Turtle Lake High School
#2 Best High Schools for STEM in Barron County
- Turtle Lake School District, WI
- Rating 3.02 out of 5 44 reviews
Senior: I used to go to Chippewa Falls High School which was a significantly larger school than Turtle Lake. At Chippewa I felt more like a number than a student; so when I came to Turtle Lake I was able to get more one on one help from teachers. I used to not do good at all when it came to my grades but now I'm maintaining A-B grades and I made it onto the A Honor Roll for the first time ever my senior year. I love my school and I'm extremely lucky to have the teachers I do.

Chetek-Weyerhaeuser High School
#3 Best High Schools for STEM in Barron County
- Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Area School District, WI
- Rating 3.58 out of 5 59 reviews
Alum: Chetek-Weyerhaeuser High School is full of amazing staff members who help facilitate your success. A small number of students (55 in my graduating class) allows personal relationships to form between fellow students and staff. Unique grading policies allow students to turn in work late (at a percentage deduction) and retake tests (after following protocol). These policies encourage students to learn the content, but may not help prepare students for post-secondary education. The foreign language curriculum could use improvements.
