Kickapoo High School
180 Best Public High Schools in Wisconsin
- Kickapoo Area School District, WI
High School Junior: Ever since coming here, I've been involved in so many things. My friends are supportive and so are my teachers, who just so happen to be my sports coaches also. This type of support is the reason why my parents and I made the decision to come to Kickapoo High. The student organizations are a big part of my life and can be stressful at some times but I'd never change it; it's who I am. Because the school is small more people can be in the organizations and sports teams. Our sports teams do not have tryouts and many students are glad, as am I. If our school had tryouts for any of our teams, many of our students who currently play for these teams would never do well enough to make it onto the team. Basically, I love my school.

Westby High School
- Westby Area School District, WI
Senior: Westby High has brought me closer to my passions. They have an amazing music department where I was able to learn and grow in band and choir. Because Westby is a small school, students are expected to be in many activites. I am in drama, forensics, FCCLA, NHS, Jazz choir, Jazz band, Norse link, and, of course, band and choir. Sadly, Westby falls short when considering academics. There aren't very many advanced or AP classes to take because there isn't a budget to pay for more teachers. This also means that our teachers have to double or triple up on different courses to meet the amount of classes they have. Overall, Westby is a pretty great school district to grow up in. Everyone knows each other, and all of the grade levels are very close, but there are a few amenities that they don't have because of the budget.

- Private School
- Norfolk, VA
Parent: Norfolk Academy provided an extraordinary educational journey for my two children, fueling their curiosity and inspiring them to explore new avenues that they might not have discovered without the incredible teachers and coaches at this school. My oldest child, who came in sixth grade, now studies engineering at an Ivy League university; he particularly loved the robotics team, as well as soccer, swimming, and crew teams. My youngest child, who is a senior at NA, came in first grade, and she has developed a passion for medicine and health, largely through the school's Global Health Fellows program and the Medical Scholars program.
