Our Mission: Ensuring a high quality educational experience and skills relevant to the 21st century.

The Sparta Area School District, located in Western Wisconsin, is a great place to grow and learn. Our strength is grounded in our staff, dedicated to meeting the needs of all of our students. You will see evidence of this in our progressive curriculum, individualized instruction, unique charter schools, active student organizations, and outstanding special education programs. Our local communities continually show their support for quality education by providing and maintaining excellent school facilities and advanced educational technology. The parents and guardians in our District have high expectations for their children and take an active role in their children’s education. Quality parental involvement in education takes many forms – at home, parent organizations, after-school activities, tutoring programs, and co-curricular groups. The Sparta Area School District also enjoys a great partnership with local business and industry, which provide work experience opportunities, financial support, special presentations and opportunities for career exploration. Finally, our students and alumni show their Spartan Pride wherever they go. Please take time to explore our District, our website, and the Sparta area. You won’t be disappointed.
