Our ACT and State Achievement scores are above the state and local average and continue to improve each year.  Our attendance rate is excellent (95%) and our dropout rate is less than 1%.  We have the highest graduation rate in our conference. Please take a moment and look at our most recent School Performance Report made available through the Department of Public Instruction.

The success of our students is directly connected to our dedicated, caring staff, active parental involvement, and our supportive community.  Visitors are welcome in the Nekoosa Public Schools. Our school buildings are all state-of-the-art and enhance student learning opportunities. The staff is always excited about the opportunity to "show case" our educational programs and services while you tour our facilities.
