Public Education

High School GraduationThe Janesville and Milton School Districts provide elementary and secondary education to area students. The public education system is large enough to provide students with access to higher level college prep courses as well as many other educational opportunities that smaller school systems do not have.  Current education initiatives include school-to-work programs to increase student achievement and help prepare students for today's rapidly changing workplace. In partnership with local businesses, the Janesville School District is creating an environment that encourages students to learn the importance of work ethic and personal responsibility, the connection between what is learned in school and how that knowledge is applied in the workplace, and about potential career opportunities. CraigParker and Milton high schools have consistently experienced graduation rates above the state average according to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.  To see how Janesville schools compare with other districts in the state, visit WISEdash.  Note: For several years Wisconsin has ranked third nationally in high school graduation rates.
