Welcome to the Sparta Area School District!

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 providing the best possible learning environment for 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, at 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, Junior Achievement instruction, financial support, and special presentations.

Lifelong learning opportunities are available through the Sparta Community Education Program. The program is an opportunity for individuals at every ageto continue learning new information, activities, hobbies and skills. New sessions are announced quarterly through the Sparta Area School District website on the Community Educationpage. For more information, contact Coordinator Jessie Sloan at jsloan@spartan.org.

Right now, we are getting ready for our annual Child Development Days and 2014-15 Pre-kindergarten registration. Because your child's first 5 years of life are so important, we want to help you provide the best start for your child and encourage all children with birth dates between Sept. 1, 2009, and March 31, 2011, attend Child Development Days Feb. 10 and 11. To help us know your child better, we are asking that you complete a questionnaire about your child's communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social skills. Additional information and registration materials can be found on our district enrollment page or by contacting Amy Schanhofer at (608) 269-3151 or aschanhofer@spartan.org

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 can also learn more by reading our Sparta Area School District brochure. I think you will agree that this is a great place to be.
