Neenah High School
53 Best Public High Schools in Wisconsin
- Neenah Joint School District, WI
Alum: Neenah High School offered many academic, extracurricular, and social opportunities that I would not have experienced at the same level elsewhere. The academics are outstanding with top notch teachers who want to see students succeed. Additionally, the amount of college level courses offered aids students in getting a jump start on college credits. Moreover, the extracurriculars at Neenah High School made me develop a passion for Neenah. Playing three sports in high school, I learned what "Neenah with Pride" was all about. For me, being involved on the volleyball, cross country, and track and field team was more than going to practice and games, it was about demonstrating the pride for where I came from and the character that I wanted to represent my community with.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
