High School Recognized by U.S. News and World Report

posted May 14, 2018, 7:08 AM by David Boland   [ updated May 14, 2018, 7:10 AM ]


     In early May, we were pleased to hear that our high school was recognized as a bronze medal winner, based on the 2018 rankings of the U.S. News and World Report  “Best High Schools in the Nation”. We have previously received bronze medal recognition as one of our nation’s best high schools in 2007, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2015; we received silver medal recognition in 2013.

     These awards are determined by analyzing information which is accumulated in a nation-wide study of 28,813 high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  Our school was one of 144 Wisconsin schools that received recognition. The study was based on the following key principles: whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in that state; whether their historically underserved students performed at or better than the state average for historically underserved students; if schools met or surpassed a benchmark for their graduation rate; and college-readiness performance.

     Congratulations to everyone who is a part of our school community!  This award reflects the dedication of our students and parents, the quality of our staff, and the commitment of the community towards our school district. It is an honor for us to receive such high recognition from a nationally based organization. 

       


Middle School Receives School of Recognition Award!

posted Apr 13, 2018, 11:16 AM by David Boland

     For the twenty-fifth time in fourteen years, the Seneca Area School District has been recognized by the state of Wisconsin’s School of Recognition award program.  This year, the District has been recognized at the middle school level by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as a Wisconsin School of Recognition.  This is the fifth consecutive year the junior high has received that recognition. Representatives from our school community will receive the award from State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers at the State Capitol on May 21, 2018. “The state’s Title I Schools of Recognition awards recognize the efforts of students, their families, teachers, school administrators, and school staff members to break the link between poverty and low academic achievement,” Evers said. “Their success is something to celebrate.”

     Congratulations to everyone who is a part of our school community!  These awards reflect the dedication of the students and parents, the quality of the staff, and the commitment of the community towards our school district. Our school has now received this award at the elementary level in 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016; at the middle school level in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017; and at the high school level in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2015, and 2016.  We are honored to have been recognized as a School of Recognition so many times in the last fourteen years.  For more information on the School of Recognition award program, check out the Wisconsin DPI website at http://dpi.wi.gov/
