When I first moved into Waukesha, the schools there were great. I was very pleased by the education my children were getting, well, for the first few years anyway. Once my child got to Horning after he graduated 5th grade from Hillcrest, I was amazed how bad the kids from other Waukesha schools. Let me tell you, Horning was a hell hole. Very few kids actually tried in school and viewed it as important (most of them being Hispanic). At Horning, my children witnessed multiple fights, drug deals, and other bad behavior. I decided enough was enough and moved to Brookfield because they don't have trashy kids there and kids actually care about school. If you are thinking to move to Waukesha, DON'T DO IT!!! Please, save yourself and your children the hardship of having to go to such a horrible school (and school district).

If you asked my 2 children what their favorite years in school were, and what their favorite school was- they would undoubtedly enthusiastically say 'Horning Middle School'. It's a class act from top to bottom. The school staff works extremely well as a team, and it shows. Students are valued by the staff, and parent input is welcomed. The 'house' system works well in helping the students adjust to middle school education. My children would proclaim their excitement about many things with Horning, but what stands out in my mind is the strong academic program, which prepared them well for high school and beyond. The music program is top-notch, and leadership opportunities abundant. Intramural sports are also popular, and attract a large number of students. In fact, my children were so enthusiastic about one teacher, that they were considering nominating this teacher for the Disney Teacher of the Year Award-.
