Say Hello to The Falls!
†If your child is heading into elementary school...
Here in Menomonee Falls, we have 4 elementary schools that work as partner schools. Our lower elementary schools, Shady Lane and Ben Franklin, serve our littlest learners: 4K-2nd, where they work on building basic skills and fostering a life-long love of learning.
Our upper elementary schools, Riverside and Valley View take on the curiosity of our 3rd-5th grade students
where they seek a deeper understanding of the world around them and feel empowered to grow.
We provide support for students of all needs, whether itís gifted and talented, English language learners, students that struggle in math and reading, behavior intervention or special education.
Students begin providing feedback as early as 4K with the PDSA process in setting goals, monitoring their success with data folders and adjusting based on needs with the help of their classroom teacher.
Our youngest students thrive as they meet goals tailored to their individual learning style.
We know how to have fun, too. Our PTOs host a wealth of events & fundraisers geared toward families and supporting students in the classroom and our staff go above and beyond creating culture-building events throughout the school year.

If your child is heading into middle school...
In middle school, studentsí personalities can be larger than life. Itís where they start figuring out who they might be as adults, and where they first start exploring career possibilities.
This is where North Middle School provides a number of unique opportunities around co-curriculars like band, choir, the arts, athletics and leadership opportunities like Best Buddies and Falls Creative Jr.
As a district, we have the strongest and largest Future Business Leaders of America chapter in the state, and it starts here at NMS. Itís also a strong foundation for theater arts as one of the few middle schools with a full auditorium.
At NMS we introduce the AVID program. It stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. These are students that are exceptionally bright but typically struggle in the classroom. Geared toward students that are first-generation college bound, AVID gives students the tools to be successful in middle school, high school and beyond.
We start building leaders early and our WEB Leaders are a prime example. WEB stands for Where Everybody Belongs and itís filled with students that work year-round to help acclimate incoming 6th grade students to life at NMS. These WEB leaders support other students and the community, annually hosting a ďValentines for VeteransĒ event.
NMS also starts STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) interests early by aligning coursework to the MFHS career clusters and providing a new, fully redesigned STEAM Lab.

If your child is heading into high school...
Whether itís a 4-year college, technical college, workforce or military we want to make sure our graduates are well-equipped to face whatever they choose to take on. Weíre the roots for a bright future for all students.
Weíve tailored course options around careers that offer solid wages, career advancement, and both hard and soft skills.
At Menomonee Falls High School we utilize the academy model housed within MFHS that allow students to focus on the interests they want to pursue post-graduation. We currently offer a business, health care, STEAM and media/marketing academy. These academies give students early insight on making a career choice so theyíre not spending precious collegiate time changing majors and taking unnecessary prerequisites.
For students that are interested in pursuing a degree through a technical college, we have a strong partnership with Waukesha County Technical College where last year alone students banked $233,000 in transcripts credits that go toward a degree. Students have the opportunity to complete workforce credentials that are industry recognized.
MFHS offers more Advanced Placement courses than any neighboring district giving students a leg up on college. This year students registered for more than 800 tests and stand to earn more than $500,000 in college credit.
We also know itís important to develop studentsí soft skills like leadership, sportsmanship and conflict resolution. Thatís why we offer 83 (and growing!) varsity sports and extracurricular activities teaching skills outside of the classroom. Want to know more about our athletics and activities? Visit the website!†
