GMS Among Top Middle Schools in Northwest Wisconsin
Grantsburg Middle School earned the top State report card for middle schools in CESA #11. Congratulations to the middle school staff and students for earning this distinction! The new State report card uses three years of past test results from the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination standardized test. They also assign importance to categories such as growth over time, closing the achievement gaps between student subgroups, and include measures that indicate students are on track to graduate with the appropriate skills.

GHS Among Best in U.S. Again in 2013

U.S. News and World Report analyzed academic and enrollment data from 18,196 public high schools in the Nation and awarded GHS the 2013 Silver Medal. High schools were evaluated on a variety of factors such as student achievement, demographics, class offerings, Advanced Placement, and college-readiness.

These distinctions place Grantsburg High School as one of the top high schools in the nation and in the top 7% of all public high schools in the state of Wisconsin (514 public high schools).

Congratulations to GHS students and staff for demonstrating that Grantsburg is again one of the best high schools in the USA!
