An outstanding high school for any student to achieve their highest potential in life. A high-achieving student learning environment. My daughter obtained an excellent education at Muskego High School to prepare her for college where she received her Doctorate degree in the medical field. Highly recommended.

This school was and is horrible! When kids are being bullied the staff says things like "kids will be kids." And won't do a thing! Anytime you get sent to the office good or bad they make you feel like you are wrong! A certain administrator got into an argument with my mom for awhile because people were harassing me and she said I was wrong! Another time 2 administrators did nothing about me not being able to go to school because I was scared for my life, I didn't show up for 2 weeks and no one helped the situation get better, all and all MHS only cares about test scores seeming they makes us retake them till they're "proficient." I do not recommend this school to ANYONE. If you have a choice, don't come here.

My daughter recently graduated from this school, and I have to say that I was very disappointed in this school! When we moved to Muskego we expected much more than what we received. My daughter had a couple of just awful teachers and was bullied for a while for being new. We also had multiple mishaps with the guidance office (appointments "forgotten" about). I agree with the other reviewer on this site who did not recommend this school to new families in the area.

I have been teaching at MHS for 17 years and have seen the school grow in its leadership and quality of staff. The district has clearly defined goals for establishing Muskego as the "district of choice" in southeastern Wisconsin. The quality of education for students has increased over these years, in my opinion. The staff has been working hard at aligning the K-12 curriculum and teachers strive hard to meet the needs of students. There is a strong commitment towards the success of all students.

I graduated several years ago, and my time at Muskego was overall good and well-spent. Many of the teachers truly have a passion for what they do while several others probably should have chosen a different profession. The school is very clean. I'm not sure if staffing has changed, but the guidance staff definitely needs some improvement. Several times I went to my counselor for help with college information or help with which classes would be best for me, and I never received any help. Very disappointing. Overall, I enjoyed my time there and I think it's a great school.

I would have to say there are some teachers that I had that were horrible! And others that were fantastic! The more fantastic teachers were the ones who you knew had a passion for what they did. Mr. Nitka was one teacher who was by far one of the best teachers i've ever had even through college.

I was a transfer student at Muskego my sophmore year. The guidence staff was not helpfull at all, did not help me with my college choices, nor help me pick the right classes for me while at Muskego. When I was doing bad in classes they were not helpfull and just didn't seem to care

This school will get you where you want to be in life. It prepares students for high education and going into the 'real world' situation. There are many AP classes to take to get college credit. All the teachers are willing to help their students in any way. The student council is phenomenal and does wonders for the students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
