Letter from Muskego- Norway School District Superintendent

In Muskego-Norway School, we love what we do, believe that it matters and strive to make a difference for those we serve. Our mission is “Every Student Learning, Growing … Succeeding.” We bring our mission to life each and every day across our system through the efforts of many hard working, engaged staff who cultivate a learning environment that personalizes, nurtures and holds students to rigorous expectations.

We are committed to providing a high-achieving student learning environment; an environment that attracts, develops and retains high-impact staff; a district worthy of strong community support; an effective system-wide continuous improvement approach; and long-term financial sustainability and resource stewardship. Our commitment to a journey toward excellence has brought:

  • A 5 Star, “Significantly Exceeds Expectations,” ranking for three consecutive years from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
  • Two National “Blue Ribbon School” awards from the U.S. Department of Education.
  • A “Mastery Level” ranking from the WI Forward Award, Performance Excellence, for our process aligned work environment.
  • A “Top Workplace” award for two consecutive years along with “Most Meaningful” and “New Ideas” recognition from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

What sets our district apart from others is the unique aspects of the constant and positive involvement of our parents, school board members and community stakeholders. Their involvement, coupled with a dynamic staff across all workforce sectors, provides a recipe for success for all of our students in Muskego-Norway. With gratitude,
