Good morning.

We are strongly considering relocating to Winneconne, WI. We are requesting any input and information regarding this village and its school system. We are not at all happy with the school district we currently reside in. Our children are both in their elementary school years.

How involved and dedicated is the teaching staff? Is there morning recess? On average, how many classrooms are there per grade? For example, there may be eight 2-3 classrooms within our current school. This school district also combines students into K-1, 2-3 and 4-5 classrooms. The students remain with the same teacher for two years. Does Winneconne combine classrooms like this or is it straight grades like K, 1, 2, etc? What is the average student-teacher ratio? We have so many questions so any information would be helpful.

We realize some of the questions we have asked are subjective. We have looked at as much information as we could from the internet but would like some subjective information as well.

Thank you so much.

my name is joel morien i am a student at winneconne high school and i would say letting your children go to the winneconne school district is an amazing idea. Our classrooms are about 25 or less students per teacher in the elementary school and we have like around 6 or 7 teacher per grade

I have just read your questions (9-24-08). I am an aide in the elementary school. Currently there are 5 teachers for K, 5 for 1st, 4 for 2nd, 5 for 3rd, 4 for 4th, 4 for 5th.( the 2nd grade class is smaller than most others). We do have 15 min morning recess, 30 after lunch, 15 in the pm. We do not have any combined grades/classes.
The K classes have an am aide. We have an excellent Special Ed Department: Early Childhood, CDS, ED, and LD. We have appx. 625 students in elem, 350 in middle school and 525 in high school. Our teachers are very dedicated. Many could go to nearby districts and receive higher pay, but choose to stay here.(Many have been here 15-20 years).New teachers have come here and stayed & even moved here.I feel so strongly about our district and the education that students receive that my 3 boys are 4th generation students to this district. I could have choosen to go elsewhere but don't see any reason to. All of our staff are dedicated from the aides, teachers, custodians, secretaries on up to administration. Hope this helps.
