Top Student Achievement - We Have the Best Schools
Grantsburg School District is one of 373 districts across the United States and Canada that has earned the distinction of inclusion on the AP Honor Roll (9th Annual). This is a district award shared by both high schools. Congratulations to our AP students, teachers, and parents. This award only comes through the focused hard work of many!
Congratulations again this year to the Grantsburg School District for earning “Exceeds Expectations” on the State Report Card! Grantsburg High School and Grantsburg Middle School also earned “Exceeds Expectations” on State Report Cards. The Wisconsin State Report Card uses three years of past State assessment data and assigns importance to achievement growth over time, closing the achievement gaps between student subgroups, and data that indicates if students are on track to graduate with the appropriate skills.
