School of Merit since 2015, and are nationally certified as a Project Lead the Way School of Excellence.


New Glarus High School has a phenomenal staff that takes pride in educating our students.  Our mission of All Achieving, Always Growing is centered around learning for both students and staff.  Our vision of learning at New Glarus High School is:

  1. Deep roots in literacy and math.

  2. Growth through academics and many opportunities through extra-curricular activities.

  3. Branching out with Career Pathways and exposure to possible career options.

  4. Blossoming through Character Education.


We aim to achieve our mission through collective commitments to our academics and extra-curricular activities, and to each other.  Our goal is to become a school that Significantly Exceeds Expectations.


Our P.B.I.S. program is centered around Knight P.R.I.D.E. which stands for Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence.  We aim to teach, model and use these character traits on a regular basis and to live our belief in true Knight Pride.


In summary, New Glarus High School is a special place found in a special community.  It is a small school that offers big opportunities to its students, and believes in its mission statement of All Achieving, Always Growing.  We are looking forward to another great school year in 2017-2018!
