Pewaukee School District

We are a WI public school district located in Waukesha County where over 400 employees put our Mission in action by serving over 2900 students in grades 4K-12. Our terrific employees make our Mission come alive - we believe in opening the door to each child's future, and we do that with a keen emphasis on college and career readiness and 21st-century skills. Our unique campus setting with all schools on one plot of land allows us to more efficiently create a sense of community while also sharing resources and staff. Our graduation rate for students is 99%. We want students to learn about, with and through technology. We also have a focus on personalized learning, meeting each student where they are at and taking them to the next level in a student-centered learning environment. With this focus, we have seen increasing student achievement growth in our Graduate Profile competencies of students contributing, creating, competing, connecting, committing & caring in our community....

In the Pewaukee School District (PSD) we embrace our mission to open the door to each child's future. This mission guides our ongoing improvement efforts as we seek to maximize the potential of each learner. Our focus on each child drives our emphasis on student-centered and personalized learning. We believe that each student has the ability to learn, grow, and succeed and that it is our job to engage children in authentic and meaningful learning experiences.

Our focus on the future requires that we consider the nature of our rapidly changing world that our graduates must be prepared to navigate when they leave us. This means preparing graduates for 2024 as well as looking ahead to the needs of our 4K students who will walk out our doors in 2037 (check out our 4K Impact video). Our efforts to prepare students for their future led us to develop a new PSD Graduate Profile after a process involving research, analysis of job markets, and receiving feedback from 150 stakeholders. This profile will be used in developmentally appropriate ways for all 4K-12 students focusing on the 6 Cs of Contribute, Create, Compete, Connect, Commit, and Care.

Our teachers, administrators, and support staff are committed to learning and improving as we take on the challenge of providing a more innovative and progressive learning experience for our students. This is evidenced by the nearly 11,000 hours of professional development completed by our staff over the past two summers alone.

Additional Culture Details

At the District Office, our leaders have drafted action plans to support the Strategic Plan focusing on key initiatives including an emphasis on greater personalization of learning, ensuring students are future ready, wellness, employee engagement, communication, and digital citizenship. The District also completed a proactive, comprehensive master-planning study of our campus facilities over the past year that identified needs and solutions for the future growth and educational needs of the campus. After receiving substantial feedback from our community, the Board of Education approved a referendum to address projects at all four of our schools. Keep up with the progress of those projects here.

We are very fortunate to live in a community so supportive of our schools. We are thankful for the resources provided, allowing us to offer a top-notch education for students, in addition to the high level of engagement we receive from our volunteers, mentors, and business partners. This kind of community support sends a powerful message to our students about the importance of education. We look forward to working with our students, families, and community - in the upcoming school year as we embrace the challenge of meeting our mission to open the door to each child’s future.
